Truly Mated for Life

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, find out about a fish that actually goes fishing!

The female anglerfish has a six-inch-long fishing pole fixed to its top lip with a little orange light on the end. When the angler’s victim nibbles at the light, he quickly becomes the angler fish’s lunch!

The strangest part of the anglerfish’s life is its mating practices. While the female is over three-feet long, the male is only a half-inch long. Mating starts when the male sinks his teeth into her side. He never lets go for the rest of his life. In fact, soon his skin and circulatory system actually join the female’s, and through this union they become, literally, one flesh.

Our Creator has an infinite variety of ways to reproduce the species but this one demonstrates quite literally the one-flesh principle of human marriage.

For Creation Moments Minute, I’m Darren Marlar.
