It’s sad to see the demise of the poor pufferfish, but you have to admit its impressive what will fit through a frogfish’s mouth.  They have evolved to be supreme ambush predators capable of eating animals twice their size thanks to their hyper elastic stomachs and protruding jaws.  In fact, their jaws create a strong suction when they strike, drawing in their prey.  Frogfish literally inhale their food.

If you’re interested in keeping one of these fascinating creatures, just keep in mind this video when you select tankmates.  Frogfish are safest kept alone.
