I am not by any stretch of the imagination an expert on angler fish, but based on my extensive (now into its 5th minute) consideration of your drawing, I have to say that the sharp teeth in front of the actual bait would seem to give away that it is a trap.

Granted, I don’t know fish psychology, any more than I know angler fish anatomy. In fact, your post is exposing gigantic gaps in my learning that are now causing me to question whether I know anything. At all. But unless fish do not view giant sharp teeth as something to fear, your angler fish — cool-looking as it is — is doomed to starve. It has evolved to a point where its ferocious predatoriness has overwhelmed its ability to be a predator.

Someone needs to tell Darwin about this. I assume you will handle that. I am going to be busy suing my elementary school teachers. Ms. Talaska, I hope you have insurance…
