The sarcastic fringehead (Neoclinus blanchardi) is a footlong fish that lives off the Pacific coast of North America. When unthreatened, the fringehead's visage is fairly unremarkable. But if a marine predator (or stray human hand) attempts to dislodge a fringehead from its crevasse, the fish will race into action, brandishing its frightening Predator-like mouth at the interloper.

"Enypniastes eximia, a sea cucumber known as the deep sea Spanish dancer, 'uses a unusual defense mechanism: when attacked, its grainy skin lights up and detaches, sticking to the aggressor. Finding its face plastered with a sticky, bioluminescent mask that it cannot shake off, the would-be predator becomes the vulnerable prey.'
