The stargazer fish get its name from the orientation of its eyes and mouth (they are both facing upward – “gazing at the stars”)
They are equipped with 2 large poison spines that are located on each of their pectoral fins.

These spines can produce electricity and are capable of delivering electric shocks. (Look up bioelectrogenesis)
Their hunting strategy is a simple one: they hide the bulk of their body in the sand and wait for prey to swim into range.

They also have a protrusion on the tip of their lower jaw that resembles a worm, designed specifically to lure fish into the strike zone.
