male anglerfish are much smaller than females and different in appearance- for example, they lack the lure that females have on their head. as males mature, their digestive system disintegrates and they must find a female mate to survive. once a male finds a female anglerfish, he attaches onto her and releases an enzyme that dissolves his skin onto hers. over time the two fuse together and the male lives off of her as a parasite, and the female will have a mate readily available when she is ready to reproduce
