This is a real monkfish anglerfish skull! This genus of anglerfish is named for the growths from their forehead that are dangled to lure prey.
They have incredibly wide mouths and the jaws are designed to shift out of the way to allow large prey to be swallowed, and then shifted back to prevent escape. When coupled with their enormous stomach, these adaptations allow a monkfish to swallow prey as large as itself!
This skull measures ~8.5" wide and can be shipped worldwide.
**PLEASE NOTE: The angler "antenna" may not be attached, to ensure safe shipping. It can be attached with a dab of glue and we are more than happy to assist via email.**
