This extraordinary specimen lives beyond the reach of the sun at depths up 5000 feet. It uses a lamp-like photophore at the end of its extended dorsal fin to attract its prey. This impression is from a female with a small full sized male attached to her belly which she uses to fertilize her eggs and when complete discards him into the abyss.
