Anglerfish Couples Have an Odd Reproductive Relationship

Reproduction has always been a strange, wonderful thing.

However, the anglerfish takes the weirdness to a whole other level.

While the relationship between the male and female anglerfish is odd, I’d say the animation in the video using human forms was even odder.

Yes, it’s weird that the smaller male anglerfish basically gets absorbed into the female as a reproductive appendage, but seeing animated human forms do that. Well, I’m still staring at the screen.

If you haven’t watched the video yet, do it. I guarantee you’ll be perplexed, and you might have trouble sleeping tonight.
