THREW THIS IN BECAUSE I LIKE THE LOOKS OF THIS FISH
THE HORRIFYING ANGLER FISH IS FOR REAL!
Hollywood has certainly given us plenty of chills, gore and grotesque creatures over the years. But when we think about some of the real creatures that inhabit our planet, we can't imagine anything scarier than the Angler Fish.
The Angler Fish doesn't need Hollywood special effects to make it one of the most frightening creatures on earth. Her front dorsal spine sticks out of her head! There's a fleshy "bait" on the end that actually glows in the dark, making it downright irresistible to fish in the dark waters a mile below the ocean's surface. Staying very still, she dangles the glowing bait in front of her mouth. Soon, an unsuspecting fish swims up to grab the bait … but in a flash, the Angler Fish has its prey skewered on its nightmarish teeth.
