The Anglerfish is a carnivore that fishes by luring its prey with a fleshy appendage called an "esca" that hangs temptingly just in front of its mouth. The esca is colonized with bioluminescent bacteria that attract smaller fish in the darkness of the deep ocean. Females also use the bioluminescent esca to attract mates. In addition to this specialized structure, anglerfish are characterized by a globose shape and ferociously sharp teeth that angle inward to prevent prey fish from escaping.
The Anglerfish pendant is 2 cm (0.8 inches) long below the loop.
The pendant is 3D printed in solid sterling silver or 14K gold plated brass, finished with a 45 cm/18 inch long sterling silver or gold plated silver chain*, and is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
*While a 45 cm/18 inch fits most, other chain lengths are available. At checkout, write a note indicating your preference.
