Deep sea monster

I used the Deep Sea Angler fish as inspiration for this creepy mermaid. These fish spend their whole lives in the darkness and have developed a stalk on the top of their heads that acts rather like a fishing rod. The end of the stalk glows in the dark and is used to lure prey right into the waiting Angler fish's mouth. Instead of a head stalk, my mermaid has been given a tiny glowing jellyfish to use when fishing for her dinner in the dark depths.
