Unlike the lantern-mouth angler, the longbarb scaly dragonfish, Macrostomias longibarbatus, catches its prey with a light-producing bulb at the end of a long, whip-like chin barbel. The creature's prey-luring appendage can grow up to 11 times the length of the head. The setup allows the fish to encircle its distracted prey and sneak up from behind.
"The night belonged to him. The night belonged to him. He hung it from a long whip on his chin," Compton writes.
