独自留在海底上是孤独的彩绘的鳖鱼, antennarius pictus。 男性和女性只能为肮脏的契约聚集在一起,但迅速变得彼此不宽容。如果女性留下太近,男性会吃女性…在整个进化中,将基因传递到下一代情景似乎是一种愚蠢的举动。除了这种最小的接触,可能会结束吃伴侣,彩绘的蛙鱼更喜欢孤独的生活。

除了荒谬的长度,涂漆的蛙鱼可以被其他人避免。个人可以扩展和收回其球状体的各个部位。皮肤本身被疣状突起和大量的小眼斑覆盖,看起来像海绵的孔,卵子。超过几周,蛙鱼也可以改变皮肤的颜色和模式。它的伪装团的一部分鱼也会让藻类在它上生长。这一切都看起来像海底的一块海绵。

尽管存在这种脆弱的海绵,但Frogfish实际上是一个主捕食者。当一个毫无戒心的猎物游泳关闭时,因为在地狱里可以看到彩绘的蛙鱼,蛙鱼会轻弹诱惑。诱饵发生在细长的第一背脊椎末端的末端,甚至被修改,看起来像一条小鱼。

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
