Bearded Anglerfish


The bearded anglerfish (genus Linophryne) a lesser known species of deep sea anglerfish that has the distinctive 'beard' lure as well as the ball lure on its head. The females can grow up  to 9 inches (they are the bigger ones. The males only grow to about an inch and a half.) And are the only ones with the lures. The smaller males latch onto the females' body (the skin actually grafts together) and siphon of nutrients to stay alive. This set shows the female about to eat a fish, and also has 1 other fish, 2 crabs, plus a topographical baseplate. So I think this would make a fantastic set because it is fairly well known, easy to build, small, and accurate. And dispite these reasons, I still only built it as a passtime.
