This fish above is covered by a hard, pointy shell, repelling predators and parasites alike. It is invulnerable to almost everything. Everything except the lure-polyp. The lure-polyp extends a lure to attract fish. When the fish bites down, spines shoot out from the lure, embedding themselves in the soft tissues inside the fish. The lure is then pulled into the stomach of the polyp with the fish still attached. The picture to the right shows how the spines extend and retract.
