An Atlantic wolffish emerges from its lair alongside a polar shrimp—which may hang around to clean the fish—off Saltsraumen, along the Norwegian coastline, on October 7, 2008.

The "rough and tough" creature's favorite snack is the gonads of sea urchins, photographer Magnus Lundgren notes on his blog.

While shooting for the Wild Wonders of Europe project, Lundgren and his team found a boulder-strewn area that was home to several wolffish couples, which he dubbed Wolffish Slope.

"The sea is a hidden place and unfortunately not to be seen by everyone," Lundgren wrote on the blog. "It is a great responsibility to share the underwater imagery with as many people as possible."
