Monkfish (sometimes referred to as sea devils!) are no doubt one of the more frightening looking creatures swimming around in the ocean! Their antenna (growing from the middle of their heads) lures their prey and they then follow through with a sudden attack! Monkfish will swallow its prey in one piece and because of its huge mouth it can swallow the prey of its own size. Luckily, they live in the sea, so you definitely won’t be bumping into one in the street tonight!
