The Tasseled Anglerfish Has a Rod and Lure Stuck on Its Face

There are lots of weird fish in the ocean. The tasseled anglerfish has several qualities that put it up there on the weirdness scale.

Near the top of the list is the rod and lure it has—attached to its face.

And see how long it takes you to actually see the fish in this video.

Looking like seaweed is a great camouflage for the tasseled anglerfish, and it’s high on the “weird” list.
