Freaky Fish #7: Deep-sea White Anglerfish

Deep-sea White Anglerfish – Haplophryne mollis Today’s featured contestant is an anglerfish that resembles a glow-in-the-dark onion – and you’d probably cry if you saw one, considering its fierce bite. The males are dwarfish, and are fifteen to thirty times as numerous as females, so it’s tough for them to find a date. Once he catches the lucky lady, he latches on for good with his sharp, hooked teeth.
