Deep-sea Anglerfish

A deep-sea anglerfish feels—rather than sees—the remote camera that took its picture in 2006.
Lined with sensory studs, the fish's flanks detect vibrations that allow it to live and love in the endless dark of the Osprey Reef, about 6,500 feet (2,000 meters) beneath the Coral Sea.
