The Wolf Fish is a strange looking fish. It has no scales and vicious looking teeth and can be found in the cold waters of the Arctic. Its long, muscular body is generally green or blue-grey. Its formidable looking teeth are for breaking up the shells of crabs and shellfish and Wolf Fish have even been known to attack fishermen when caught!
This species gets its name from its large, strong teeth which are used to grind snail shells, mussels, sea urchins and crabs. New teeth grow to replace old, worn out ones.
