In this clip from Planet Earth III, Sir David Attenborough warns that a Pacific angel shark will stay hidden in the sand for days, waiting to strike. From Monterey Bay Aquarium:

“When an unsuspecting fish comes near, the shark lunges upward, sucks the fish into its huge mouth and swallows it whole.”
