At 21, my foolish brother thinks he really doesn't need any more stuffed animals.  In fact, he thinks he should have stopped receiving them about ten years ago.  Obviously he is so very wrong, so my mother and I make a point of giving him a weird or cool stuffed animal every year.  For this year, I've made a deep-sea anglerfish for him.

The stitching on the fins and the bead at the end of his tentacle-thing glow in the dark, just like a real anglerfish, which uses its glowing to lure food.

I wish the teeth were straighter, but other than that, I'm fairly happy with him.  Plus, an anglerfish is one of the few animals I have actually never seen available as a stuffie commercially, so this is probably the only way my brother could get one, which is kinda cool.

That's too cool. My boyfriend and I love watching the deep-sea discovery channel shows and we both loved this. Smiley Great job! And I agree, all brothers need stuffed animals, 'specially in front of their girlfriends/boyfriends.
