One of the more translucent neurotenics found on the isle along with the nuero quetz.  Instead of blending in though, it's glass-like body serves in utilizing a set of internal bioluminescent organs for a startling full-body flash to daze onlookers. If it's not scavenging, It preys on bite-sized creatures using it's set of detachable jaws which give it a slightly longer ranged and more whip-like bite. Strangely to aid in it's night endeavours,  (though eyeless at first glance) it possesses two headlight-esc spots near where eyes would be, casting a difficult to detect red light on those hiding in the dark. All in all, it's a daytime push-over and a nighttime devil.

This thing looks badass, you really should think about making your own alien planet with designs like these.

I do wonder if it were possible to develop dislocating jaws that orient opposite of what deep sea pelican fishes do.

trap-jaw with moveable upper-jaw instead, lower jaw could be moveable or solid into the skull.

Oh well, this design likely scoops small prey and aims for softer underbelly against bigger ones.

you should make the jaws like what you already have you  could mix it with the jaws of this fish called a payara where its teeth goe through its head

I love how you've taken the concept of the goblish sharks mouth and put it onto the carno! It looks amazing!

Hehehm thanks, though If you think the goblin shark’s mouth is strange you should see the stoplight-loose-jaw.

I feel like that the Neurotenic strain takes some of its influence from deep sea fishes/insects.

That face alone describes: I am the reason why nightmares exist, fear me.
I love the creepiness.
IT'S AWESOME.
