Maybe not, though. My demon physiology is pretty rusty.

Another suborder within the Anglerfish group is Lophioidei. It contains all the Monkfish and Goosefish.
And, of course, it's an anglerfish so it has a lure on its snout to entice prey and actively encourage them to wander too close. So unfair!
There are three species, one about 30 cm (1 foot) long and the other two a few inches longer.

They sit around on the sea floor, resting a rather podgy body on four, thick fins which are clearly adapted to walking.
Their lure is extremely spindly and it isn't bioluminescent, so I guess it wouldn't work too well in pitch darkness. That might be why these fish tend to live in the twilight zone, where there is still a bit of hazy light.
And just look at those lovely, soft eyes! This is a Deep Sea Puppy if ever i saw one.
