An Australian fisherman off the coast of New South Wales pulled a three-meter creature with razor-sharp teeth from the water. The mysterious monster made us wonder what species it should be classified as. Jason Moyse shared photos of the deep-sea beast and admitted that he doesn’t know exactly what it is. But he admits that it’s an eel. This was reported on the Trapman Australia Facebook page.
Moyse regularly tells fishing stories and posts photographs of unusual creatures, as well as more famous ones.
