Fangtooths are beryciform fish of the family Anoplogastridae (sometimes spelled “Anoplogasteridae”) that live in the deep sea. The name is from Greek anoplo meaning “unarmed” and gaster meaning “stomach”. With a circumglobal distribution in tropical and cold-temperate waters, the family contains only two very similar species, in one genus, with no known close relatives: the common fangtooth, Anoplogaster cornuta, found worldwide; and the shorthorned fangtooth, Anoplogaster brachycera, found in the tropical waters of the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean.
