It has a large mouth with needle-like teeth.

They are small oval or cylinder shaped fishes.

They have mouths that are completely filled with very spiny sharp rather needle like teeth. Strangely enough even their tongues have teeth on them.

There are sixty odd species of lizard fish, and each has the tongue teeth as well.

Lizard fish are what is known as an ambush predator, which will sit on the bottom and wait for their prey to come tot hem before grabbing it in very sharp toothed jaws.

Deep-sea lizardfish are covered in very tough scales and can be dark brown or black as well as a variety of other colorations.

They have black eyes and the lining of their mouths and gill areas are black as well.

The Lizardfish lives on the bottom and ranges in many different habitats. It can live in coral reefs, and also equally well in silt-filled areas of rubble type habitat.

The lizard fish ranges throughout the Indio Pacific area.
