 Anglers and Frogfish
Anglerfish and Frogfish are marine fish that attract prey by dangling a fleshy, bait-like appendage (the esca) in front of their heads. The appendage, which resembles a fishing pole, is attached to the end of the dorsal fin's foremost spine (the illicium), which is separated from the rest of the fin.The angler fish can catch impressively large prey since it is equipped with a jaw capable of distending, thin and flexible bones and a stomach that can be heavily expanded. The combination of these features makes it possible for the anglerfish to swallow and digest fishes twice its own size.
