Deep Sea Anglerfish: This one may look terrifying, but it can only grow up to about five inches in length. The male anglerfish are unable to live for very long without the females, and they actually attach themselves to the females like a parasite, with their blood vessels joining together. If a male doesn’t attach to a female in this way, he will die of starvation. Talk about clingy!
