Can change his teeth

The atlantic wolffish can dive down to 450m depth and usually lives above sandy or muddy seabed. The atlantic wolffish's food includes bottom-dwelling hard-shelled invertebrates such as crabs, mussels and sea urchins, whose shells they break open with their powerful teeth. Due to the way they eat their food, their teeth wear out quickly and are then replaced in winter. During the change of teeth, atlantic wolffish eat soft food or starve during this time.
