Genus: Gigantactis
…is a genus of Whipnose Anglers (Gigantactinidae) which occur in most oceans, at deep depths of around 1,000-2,500 meters (3,300-8,200 ft). Like their namesake suggests members of Gigantactis posses elongated Illicium (their “lures”) with bioluminescent photophores at their end. In typical angler fashion these are used to lure prey into striking distance.

Baby gharials are adorable. I hope they make the same “mep!” that baby caimans make.

I know crocodilians don’t even open their mouths to make noise but imagine all these little stick faces yapping away
