The teeth are interesting -- and good grief did they ever do a tremendous amount of work on them; they set a standard very few other papers are likely to meet, I'd think -- but this fish also emits red light, which is amazing. I can't think of another animal that does that -- and its teeth look fluorescent in the 'red light' video, though I presume that's some kind of artifact.
