Frogfish - Juvenile

Antennarius sp

Description:

Very small Frogfish grey/brown in colour with goldish eyes, around 1.5cm hiding among coral rubbles and they camouflage very well as they hardly moves. Most of the time, they 'sits' on the rubble/rocks/substrate and when hunting, they may flick their 'lure' to attract fishes to them and then lunge and swallow the fish full. They are capable of swallowing other fishes as big as them!

Habitat:

Coral rubbles
