The deep sea angler fish is one of the most peculiar fish in the sea. Commonly referred to as the “sea devil” the angler fish to some may be the most interesting fish in the sea or the most terrifying. The deep sea angler fish is one of 200 of its species.
Though not praised on its looks, the angler fish definitely uses its structure to its advantage. Their most distinctive feature, only worn by females, is the small organ known as a photophore. This rod-like organ allows a blue-green light to produce through bioluminescence, allowing them to attract their prey.
With their mouth being so big and their bodies so flexible they are able to consume crustaceans, fish, and other species up to twice their size.
Residing in the deepest parts of the ocean, the male deep sea angler fish has evolved into a parasitic mate. Though for some angler species, young male anglers will encounter a female and latch onto her with its teeth, eventually causing them to fuse together. This physical fuse will cause the male angler to connect its bloodstream with the female, losing its eyes and internal organs.
This ambush predator may sound intimidating yet it is not the biggest in size. Females are much larger than males, reaching up to 5 inches in size.
This species resides in the deep abyss, with the absence of sunlight and where the water is low in temperature. Fortunately for some, you will not encounter this sea devil unless you find yourself 2000 meters below the surface.
