First Video Of Deep-Sea Anglerfish
Scientist have recorded the first-ever video of an elusive angler fish species
A team of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute recorded what is believed it has recorded the first footage of the Black Seadevil in its natural habitat.
Deep-sea anglerfish live in the deep waters of the ocean and only a handful have been photographed or filmed in the past. MBAI scientists spotted the 9cm-long specimen in the video below at 600m earlier this month.
The species is known for it's unique yet efficient hunting technique: A bioluminescent lure attracts fish and small squid in the dark and are then quickly inhaled by the angler.
