    The Coffinfishes are bottom-dwelling fishes that are found in deep waters around the world. They move along the bottom on short leg-like fins.Like the pufferfishes they swallow large amounts of water to inflate themselves making it harder for predators to bite into them.Coffinfishes have a small lure on their head like their anglerfish relatives .A short rod and a small glowing bulb at the tip used to lure its prey.

    Reminds me of a stargazer or a monk fish. Is that fish edible?
