Found in the bottom of deep bottom waters of the Atlantic coast between the states of North Carolina and New York in the United states , Norther Stargazers have a flat forehead with a lot of body mass up front near the mouth .

Once something tasty swims by, it uses its large mouth to create a vacuum to suck its prey in.
