  •          Bearded anglers also have bioluminescent branching barbs on their chin.
  •          Male bearded anglers are much smaller than the females.

Bearded anglers are really alien looking fish! Bioluminescence is such a great adaptation! We wish we could glow! Could you imagine Ellie with large glowing ears?
