PostSubject: Angler Mermaids   Sat Nov 19, 2011 8:54 pm

After taking some thought into it about the many unknown creatures of the Sea Depths of Felarya and thinking about deep sea mermaids like the trio Timing2 made, I just got this wild idea with a little help from Walking I decided to post this idea, not sure if its any good or not but well here goes nothing from little Metal Nazo here.







Angler mermaids,

A rarely seen species of mermaid that are about 40 to 80 feet in length they live in the sea depths of the Topazial Seas and Shimmering Seas but can be seen by the costal lines on rare nights, the angler mermaid is a truly frightening creature to lay your eyes on unlike other mermaid species they appear more animalistic and behave as such in nature.

Their heads are massive compared to the rest of their bodies and are one of the most well-known features of the angler mermaid the anglers have a clearly visible crescent-shaped mouth that is just filled with translucent teeth, they have elastic like mouths that can enable them to easily swallow anything up to twice there size their stomachs can easily stretch when eating something larger than them. This gives the anglers a very scary and rather alien like appearance which is just terrifying to look at. They are generally in colors that very from dark-greys to dark-brown which help them stay hidden in their dangerous dark environment but there not completely invisible even with these colors.

All angler mermaids have (at least only the females) a spine like lure that at the very end of it has bioluminescent bacteria that enables them to admit light which they use to lure in prey over their powerful mouths, once prey is within reach they quickly at blinding speeds eat their prey before it as a chance to escape.

Solo predators by nature angler mermaids unlike other mermaid races donít have any form of socializing with others whatsoever apart from the rare chat they have every now and then, they usually can only think and care about looking for food and avoiding other predators because the harsh and unforgiving sea depths have made them this way. It should be noted that unlike other mermaids angler mermaids are far from being beautiful and greatly lack many of their cousinís abilities like singing and most forms of magic some canít even use magic at all. But in truth they donít really need any of their cousinís looks or abilities in order to track down and lure prey.

The male anglers is very small next to female usually around 20 to 40 feet long unlike the females male anglers donít have the special lures the females have at all, they do however have a small bioluminescent light in between their eyes thatís only known purposes is to tell a female he is approaching so she doesnít attempt to eat him. Their diet is made up of glass caelias and other mermaids alone with whatever they can catch in general anything that moves (not including their own kind) is food and they donít care rather it can talk or not making them by far one of the most unreasonable races.

Mermaids and caelias are top predators, they can not have a diet mainly composed of these.

Itís rumored that selachis advise people to avoid anglers which the fact that even selachis recommend avoiding such predators is saying something.
Is this based off the behaviour of real life sharks avoiding angler fish?

Well it was just a rumor on the selachis thing not a real fact so I'll take that out.

It seems these mermaids have male problems then? I think that's the main detriment here, is that they're so solo and aggressive it even puts danger to the men.

Well I planned on putting in that once a male meets a female the male does what a male angler fish in nature would do, this will help explain.


Angler mermaid reproduction.


The reproduction of angler mermaids is very unusual unique and parasitic in nature, the male anglers is very small next to female usually around 20 to 40 feet long unlike the females male anglers donít have the special lures the females have at all, they do however have a small bioluminescent light in between their eyes thatís only known purposes is to tell a female he is approaching so she doesnít attempt to eat him. Once a male has located a female and makes her aware of his presents he attaches himself to the female by biting onto her, as time goes by the mouth of the male fuses with the femaleís skin, and the bloodstream. The male will eventually lose his eyes and organs and his will to think, he becomes a lump on the female once the two have completely fuse all the male is good for at this point is to just deliver sperm to the females eggs. A female can have as many as 2 to 4 lumps on herself at any given time.
In the summer time a female with fertilized eggs will lay her eggs which come in the form of a big mass that varies in size depending on the eggs being laid, once the eggs have been laid they float to the surface where they will hatch though when is unclear but once they hatch the young anglers are small and around the size of tinies when they hatch they begin to feed on smaller creatures and ones slightly bigger then themselves as they begin their solo lifeís into adulthood. Interestingly enough angler mermaids when young are maybe at the most social theyíll ever be in there lifeís with their own kind little lone anything else that wonít become prey.




This was going to be information explaining how the race reproduces and how they mate.
