Anglerfish

Anglerfish

Angler fish (scientific name: Lophiiformes) is one of the largest species of marine fish. It has a huge flat head and a wide mouth, and on its head is like a bait with which it lures small fish to catch them. The anglerfish derives its name from the appendage that protrudes from the front of its head, which it uses to catch its food, because it is similar to the bait that is placed on a hook.


reproduction

The angler fish or the hook fish is one of the strangest fish ever: and the scientists stated that they have not yet come across anything stranger than it, especially in its males that feed and mate, so that the male attaches himself to one of the females and merges with her body and feeds from her blood: for this, the length of the females reaches two meters and her weight It reaches more than 40 kg, while the size of the male is much smaller than that.


the hunt

The anglerfish has a very strange method of catching its victims, which is what scientists called the ambush method. It is helped by its mouth, which resembles a hut, and the long, strong fin, which is very similar to a hook attached to the head above the mouth. Buried in mud and sand, and when the small fish approach, it quickly opens its hollow mouth, and a large amount of water flows into it, and the small fish rushes with it, so the fishhook pounces on them at a speed that cannot be followed with the naked eye..

Among the oddities of the fish also, is that it lays more than a million eggs combined in one mass..
