Deep Sea Goosefish (Sladenia)

Deep Sea Goosefish (Sladenia) are anglerfish from the deep sea who lack the furious, devilish facial expressions of the classic deep sea anglerfish.
They sit their podgy bodies on the sea floor, resting on four, thick fins adapted for walking.
They have the classic lure for attracting prey but it isn’t luminescent.
I’m sure things change when dinner comes along, but when they’re just sitting there they look like the sweetest little deep sea puppies!
