description The anglerfish has many names (arm wrestlers, toad fish), whereby the name Anglerfisch has ultimately prevailed.
Anglerfish have an amazing adaptability to their environment.
This of course serves the camouflage.
The anglerfish is a huntsman, that is, he is able to remain motionless for hours and wait for booty.

Anglerfish use their first spine fins, which are transformed into an angel (see also graphic in the main rubric) for catching other beasts of prey.

If a beutier catches the simulated fishing rod of the anglerfish, the latter sucks the booty with his mouth so strongly that it is sucked into the mouth.
Escape is as good as futile, since the pull is far too strong.
