Plastic Angler Fish Toy from Tapir and Friends Animal Store
Straight from some crazy, Tim Burton-esque nightmare comes our plastic angler fish. These denizens of the deep are truly odd. They use bioluminescence or attractive lures on the tops of their heads to attract prey into their gaping maws of death, and their mating ritual involves the tiny male permanently attaching itself to the much larger female and allowing its body to atrophy. But their weirdness also makes them awesome...to us anyway. Anglers aren't the only strange creatures at the bottom of the sea; be sure to check out all our wild and wonderful deep sea dwellers today.This blog is sponsored by Tapir and Friends Animal Store.
