These are all true (hilarious) facts about the anglerfish.
Anglerfish are an incredible species, and present some of the most interesting facts there are in the underwater world. Their use of a dangling piece of “bait” that they wave in front of their face to lure food is amazing, the sort of thing we could watch over and over again.
Speaking of videos we could watch over and over (and still not really learn anything “new”), you need to see this one from YouTube user zefrank1.
Yeah, there’s no scientific sense to the “glowy, glowy bacteria in its wavy thing,” as described by the narrator, but we’ll let it slide for amusement’s sake. We’ll let the entire video slide, because, yeah, those aren’t really “facts.”
We hope you got a laugh out of that one, and maybe it even inspired you to actually learn some “real” facts about the anglerfish.
