bestiary: anglerfish

national geographic says that these are possibly the ugliest animals on earth. poor guys. they need love too, right? you might remember one such fish from a certain disney movie about a certain clownfish (link to appear when they're drawn...if i remember). the largest of these fish (of which there are hundreds of different of types apparently) are over three feet long. that's over a hundred pounds of ugly-fish! not my words, national geographic's i swear. what's crazier is that their mouths are flexible enough for them to be able to eat prey that is double their size. so if you are one such fish, don't call them ugly and don't look at their fishing rods dorsal protrusions. anglerish in moleskine.
