Fanfin Angler is a fish belonging to the order Lophiiformes and has a particular physical appearance. It measures from 10 to 50 cm and is equipped with a largemouth in which we find sharp and terrifying teeth. This balloon-like creature has sensitive thorn-shaped organs that help it detect the movements of its prey. It uses his antenna to attract and catch its prey.
