It has a brown body with no scales. Fringed appendages in combination with unique patterns help the fish to camouflage in the muddy bottom where it lives. Along the head it has long filaments whose role is to lure other, smaller fish. A fun fact about angler is that sometimes it’s able to catch even a seagull! It’s an excellent hunter that lives at the depth of up to 1000 m. It grows up to 2 m in length and can go up to 60 kg (the biggest reported specimen had 58 kg).
