These Deep Sea Fish Are Stranger Than Anything You’ve Ever Seen in a Science Fiction Film

The anglerfish is a fascinating creature.

Anglerfish dwell between 980 and 16,400 feet below the surface of the ocean, where they live in total darkness and lure prey with a bioluminescent protrusion in front of their jaws (hence the name).

Deep-sea anglerfish are a little marine creature’s worst nightmare with the assistance of this luminous bait.

These strange critters are known for their odd mating behaviors, which involve the males biting into the female’s belly and clinging on for life.

The male anglerfish lives out his days as a parasite, sucking nourishment from her blood and dangling there to fertilize her eggs.

In the video below, you may see the first mating pair ever captured on camera.
