Fanfin Anglerfish

The ugly fanfin anglerfish has long fins and a lure, like a fishing rod, hanging off its nose. The lure contains light-emitting bacteria and once a shrimp goes for the lure, the anglerfish's mouth isn't far behind. Most deep sea animals have limited vision, so the anglerfish feels currents and movements around its body with the long fins up and down its back.
