Clione limacine, better known as monkfish - translucent mollusc of the order Golotelyh (Gymnosomata), slowly sliding through the icy waters of the northern seas.

Suffice it to descend to a depth of five hundred meters somewhere in snowy Alaska or northern Europe, the Arctic and the Pacific Ocean, in the north Atlantic, and you face-to-face with these ancient shellfish, which, as a century ago, graceful dissecting the water surface a pair of small protrusions (parapodial) resembling tiny angel wings.

But do not be fooled by the innocent, angelic appearance that almost ephemeral creation - in front of you is a real predator, ready at any time to deal ruthlessly with his victim.

Favorite treat angelfish is one of his relatives, or rather, a cousin - pteropods limatsin (Limacina helicina), which "angel" menu listed as "monkfish".

Eating congener occurs strictly plan scheme - the first in the course are three tenacious tentacles that stranglehold cling to the mouth of the victim and deploy shell to his mouth, "angel", then connect the six coated with chitin sharp hooks that are in special bags mouth.

With hooks Clione limacine pulls his less fortunate brother from the sink and swallow whole. As a true gourmet, monkfish can stretch your meal for almost an hour. However, to get involved is still not worth it, because there is a risk to be in the role for lunch toothless whale or sea birds.
