The way angler fish reproduce is actually pretty cool.The female is the larger of the two.So the male bites into the female and feeds off her until they grow into them.Once they are a part of them they secrete the sperm and the female gets pregnant.The male then dies and becomes extra flesh.The female then lays eggs and after so many months they hatch.
