Deep Sea Hatchetfish
rating: 0+x

Basic Information

Small but creepy looking carnivorous fish. During the day they may be more than 1,000 meters below the surface, to stay out of the light, to which they are very sensitive. During the night, however, they may rise to as little as 50 meters from the surface. They are bioluminescent, and can modulate their light level so as to cast no silhouette when viewed from below.
