A fisherman found this crab in one of his nets:

Tagging his new find, Roman said "Crabs…All the same, there is something attractive and repulsive in them. Mother nature tried."
Many of Roman's fans praised crusty old Gums in the comments that were posted beneath his post.
One said: "Just a little dental work and the little fella will be just fine."
"Love those human teeth!", said another.
Besides these, one user also detailed the deformity of the creature, as he commented, “This is a just deformity of the shell. Take a look at different pictures of a crab's shell around the front end of the shells and you will see that this crab’s front lower shell has split from the deformity.”
It has a nice set of teeth
Fedorov works on a trawler. They have massive nets fastened to the back.
The nets are pulled along the ocean floor or at a specific depth, capturing any creatures that come into contact with them. Even though fishermen may be hunting for a certain kind of fish, this technique inevitably captures other organisms that are laying in the nets' path.
The nets frequently reach depths of 980 to 3,300 feet, which means fewer frequently seen deep-water species will occasionally be pulled to the surface.
Even though the image of a crab with teeth has gained immense popularity, it still hasn't reached any marine biologist who would offer an explanation or even a species name for this interesting find.
For now, we simply have to be satisfied with the explanation that our planet is a wonderful place that holds so many secrets we love to discover. And they never cease to amaze us.
We can't wait for the next post. Who knows what this fisherman will find next?
