Prince Axel’s Wonder Fish (Thaumatichthys axeli)


Prince Axel’s Wonder Fish or Thaumatichthys axeli is a strange looking deep sea saltwater fish. Much like the Anglerfish, this fish has a bioluminescent organ projecting from its toothy jaws. This serves to light the dark habitat and attract potential meals for this deep sea dweller. Species have been recorded at over 11,700 feet deep! The first species caught was 18" in length, but no one really knows just how big the Prince Axel's Wonder Fish can become. There is little more known about this strange deep sea creature. If you know more about this species please add it to the comments below...
