Angler fish

This has to be the scariest fish out there! It has a long spine out of the front of it which glows mildly to attract its prey. The angler sits in the dark and literally fishes for food, then goes into snap it up. Unfortunately the tank was circular so it was impossible to get a shot without any reflections but this was the best one ( you can see the rainbow-type reflection on the right hand side ).


This beast of a fish has made it to the flicker explore page :o) Got ranked 10 at its highest. Thanks to everyone who commented!


Over 10,000 views!! I would never have thought I would reach this for a photo :o) Thanks again everyone!


I recently went back and got another photo of this in black and white.


After visiting another aquarium I got this shot of a shark in a similar pose!
