Habitat: deep, lightless waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans
This type of anglerfish is distinguished from others by its lack of an expanded escal bulb – the bioluminescent lure that anglerfish use to entice their prey towards their jagged-toothed mouths – and by the very long dorsal & anal fin rays.
They also like little guys, as the male only gets to be a 1/2 inch long, while the female is 8 inches or more. I’ll never understand that attraction.
Well, off to some gruesome nightmares!
