Fun Octopus Facts by Kidzable

The Octopus live in many different regions of oceans around the world, but they are commonly found in coral reefs. All Octopuses are venomous, but the only ones that have been found to be deadly to humans are the small-ringed Octopus.

Most Octopuses do not live a very long life. Some species will live for only about six months, but some species that are larger may survive for up to five years. One interesting fact about the Octopus is that it often dies as a result of reproduction. The males normally die shortly after they mate, and females often die shortly after the eggs have been hatched. Many Octopuses are eaten, particularly in Japan. Some Octopuses are even eaten alive in some areas. Some people try to keep them as pets, but often they are able to escape secure cages.

Fun Anglerfish Facts by Kidzable

Angler fish is a name used for more than 200 different predatory fish species that all use a very characteristic method to catch their prey. The Angler fish has developed a modified first spine known as the illicium. The illicium is attached to the first or spinous dorsal fin and protrudes over the eyes of the Angler fish.

The illicium is equipped with a fleshy growth named esca and the Angler fish can wiggle the esca back and forth to use it as bait. Other predatory fish will be lured to this bait and promptly devoured by the Angler fish as they come close enough to its mouth.

One of the Anglerfish species, the Netdevil, even has some additional growths on the chin to look extra attractive to prey. A predatory fish doesn’t have to be small to be considered prey by the Angler fish, since the Angler fish can distend its jaw and swallow fishes that are twice as big at itself. To digest these large preys the Angler fish have bones that are thin and flexible and a stomach that can be expanded to an enormous size.

All the known Angler fish species belong to the order Lophiiformes; the bony fish order. A majority of the species belong to deep-water dwelling fish families that live in the oceans’ aphotic zones. There are however also some Angler fish families that contain a few shallow water Angler fish species, such as the family Lophiidae that contains the Goosefish/Monkfish, the family Ogcocephalidae that contains the Batfishes and the family Chaunacidae that contains Seatoads/Coffinfishes. In the family Antennariidae, all the Angler fish species inhabit shallow waters. They are known as Frogfishes.
