THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE © National Geographic Society Painting by Else Bostelmann. Five Times Natural Size BABY DRAGONS OF THE DEPTHS FIGHT OVER A VICTIM These two young Saber-toothed Viperfish (see Plate V) are only an inch in length, but Nature has provided them with relatively enormous fangs, which they use with terrible effect in pitched battles hundreds of fathoms down. One of them has seized a Scarlet or Flammenwerfer Shrimp (see Plate XVI), whose dense cloud of protective " flame" did not prevent capture. It will be swallowed whole, and slowly digested.
