1: Period 7 Scientific Name: Lophius Piscatorius | Angler fish
2: Trivia/Factoids | The Angler fish is a carnivore with no scales.The Angler fish has an illicium (only on females) that attracts little fish. It also lures millions of bioluminescent bacteria. Male Angler fish are 2.5 inches but female Angler fish are 47 inches.
3: Habitat | The Angler fish lives in the ocean. More specifically it lives in the Atlantic and Antarctic ocean. Even more specific than that it lives 1,640-10,000 feet deep.
4: The Angler Fish has a physical adaptation that lets it attract little fish.Its spine has moved up to the forehead. It has also camouflaged it's body to the rocks and the ground. | Physical Adaptations
5: The angry looking Angler fish has a reason to be mad because it lives in the lonely deep waters of the sea.But what ever fish that isn't an Angler fish would get eaten by the angler fish, so it wouldn't have any friends. | Behavior Adaptations
6: Carrying Capacity | Well it was to hard to find the carrying capacity of the Angler fish. But carrying capacity means-The number of people or things that can be conveyed or held by a vehicle or container. In other words it is how many people can be at one place at the same time.
7: Environmental Needs | Biotic-water,sand,rocks,and ground(nonliving things that the animal needs). Abiotic-little fish and female Angler fish(living things that the animal needs). I couldn't find anything for the population so i wrote the definition. Population-all the inhabitants of a peculiar area.
8: The Squid and the monk fish are 2 of the Angler fishes enemies. The Angler fish has a symbiosis relationship with the female it attaches it's self to the female for ever. Mutualism- male latches its self to the female and fertalizes the female. On the other hand the female feeds the male. Commensalisms- the Angler fish eats other fish. Co-evolution- in a broad sense biological coevolution. Parasitism- The relation between two different kinds of organisms in which one receives benefits from the other by causing damage to it. | Relationships with other animals
9: The Angler fish eats little fish and some fish that are bigger than its self. Monkfish and Squid eat the Angler fish. | Food Web Diagram
10: First the Angler fish is born. Then it survives until it is an adult. After that he looks for a mate and bites on to her. Once he has latched on to her he fertilizes her and she feeds him. The male then loses his eyes and intestine. | Life Cycle
12: These are some things that could extinct the Angler fish: no water, pollution,disease, and oil spill. But i am not sure if it is endangered or not. | Long term species
