True facts about an Angler fish

A lot of field herpers seem to go fishing, or maintain aquariums, as much as they do herp! Any and all things fish are welcome in this forum.

This is hilarious...I usually scoff at anthropomorphic productions, but this has such snappy dialog I just had to laugh. My sister, a semi serious aquarist ( is that a word?) once had a frog fish, which I think is a type of angler. It was a great favorite, but it came to a sad end when it ingested a lion fish which apparently envenomated it, as both were dead in the morning. Thanks for posting this, I can't wait to send her the link. I hope Joseph views this.

I wonder if some women view us as male anglers..?

That poor flounder...LOL, Vic

Awesome contribution to the forum, Bill! I've always loved angler fish (in part because of the female's absorption of the male), and now I love them more still. :thumb:

Oh yes this is a frickin gem. One of my roomates found this and the whole evening we would periodically bust up laughing at thinking of the flounder and the sargassumfish scene.
