Yes, the angler indeed does make sounds. It makes a beeping trilling sound similar to that of a doorbell's after wave. Anglers also have been known to send out high pitched squeals that only their extremely sensitive ears can hear. John Gram Stanford University Marine Biological Research and...
Angler fish do not produce light. They have a relationship with bacteria that does it.
All the world's oceans, to a depth of about 3,000 feet, are home to this five inch long bizarre looking fish with the well-earned nickname "common black devil". It has its own flashlight (torch) projecting from it's head! PLEASE see the related link for more information:
Anglerfish live mainly idiota in the oceans aphotic zones, where the water is to deep for the sun to penetrate; therefore thpopoeir perdition relies cacaon the "lure" being bioluminescent.estos animales son puros maranos que estos animales vayan i agan a su mama i a su papa

An anglerfish belongs to the Animalia kingdom, the chordata phylum,  and the actinopterygil class. The angler fish also belongs to the  subclass neopterygil.
even though they live in the dark the female gives off a chemical so the male smells it out, because he cant see 1 thing.
Angler fish do not migrate. They live in very deep parts of the  ocean and use their unique physicality to attract prey.

Anglerfish are noted for the angry expression they possess. They  are dark grey or brown, have sharp, clear teeth, and can grow to be  several feet long. Only the females have a row of spikes on the  outer body, including one which sticks out above their mouths, used  for hooking prey.
yes they do, they sleep floating around.
The frogfish is hard to see because in the weeds it lives in look just like it.
I believe Angler fish spit water at bugs that are on leaves from overhanging trees near the body of water the Angler fish are in. When they spit water, they are usually very accurate and sometimes catch the bug before it even hits the water.
yes they do live in the midnight zone because of their bioluminesence
The flavor of angler fish is compared to lobster in taste and texture.
the question is...how big are you?
We do not use it yet. But if you were trapped in mid- Antarctica (where it lives) for some reason; you could use its esca(the light on its head) for light.
it needs a very dark place to light it up and attract preys for it to eat...
Here is a whole lesson about angler fish "lights" so brace yourself. The light on an angler fish is not made out of electricity as many people think but out of bioluminescence. Bioluminescence is made by bacteria. Almost any animal that lights up has it, like a fire fly or lightning bug (depending...
All oceans that are deep is were the Anglerfish lives

Not all Anglerfish are deep sea fish. For the ones that are, a few have been brought to the surface but in many cases, they die not long after being brought up.

If you have seen finding nemo then you have seen an angler fish. It is the fish that lives in super deep water and uses a natural light conected to its body to atract other fish. A live one has never been brought to the surface since their body explodes when the pressure is removed.
  At the bottom of the ocean.Where it cold and dark so they can't be seen by bigger fish that might want to eat the anglerfish.
Angler fish live in the Atlantic and Antarctic oceans. The zone they live in is the midnight zone.
ha ha ha! yes, they do. =)
Animals which produce light directly are known as producing Bioluminescence. Anglerfish are different. They do not produce the light with their own bodies like fire flies, rather they have a unique relationship with bacteria called symbiosis, and the bacteria actually produce the light for the...

When a young, free-swimming male angler encounters a female, he latches onto her with his sharp teeth. Over time, the male physically fuses with the female, connecting to her skin and bloodstream and losing his eyes and all his internal organs except the testes. A female will carry six or more males...
The angler fish eats fish smaller and larger than itself
    they show there teeth
an angler fish moves by swumming or moving its fins to move the water and propel it foward

Although the true depth of an ANGLERFISH is unknown, they live SO deep that almost no light can reach them. They use their "lights" to lure fish into their doom. ( mouth ) FUN FACT: Female Anglerfish are 5 times bigger than a male. In comparison, it's like you, compared to an elephant!Actually,...
