Caption

This Eustomias sp, a barbeled dragonfish, has a bioluminescent lure that dangles at the end of a long rod attached to its chin. The massive teeth of this species are used to grip prey items drawn to the lure. It has photophores on its face that produce red light and allow it to see red prey items, like prawns. This individual was captured in a trawl between 1000 and 1500 meters depth in the Gulf of Mexico, 2007.
