Anglerfish

Anglerfish are on 4 different episodes, and are #1 on Oddities, #2 on Big Mouths, #1 on Appendages, and #1 on Night Lights. Their mouth is 30% the size of their body. They have a worm like thing sticking, and wiggling above their forehead, that they use to catch fish, with a really fast moving mouth. However, if we dive down to the bottom of the abyss, we find some very strange creatures. And the strangest of the strange is the Deep Sea Anglerfish. It has a bioluminescent light, that attracts prey. Its live depends on this light. Only females have this light however. Males are so different from the females, that for many years, scientists thought they were a different species all together. The female is 40 times bigger than the male. The male needs to find a female, and then bite on to her. The internal blood vessels of the male, infuse with the blood vessels of the female, and the male turns into nothing more than a reproductive lump. For many years, scientists thought that the female was just growing strange lumps.

  • If following the countdown of extreme Big Mouths, here is a link to the final contender, which has such a big mouth that it literally bites off more than it can chew.
