Spot the Fish in this Picture

_DSC4156It’s a crocodile fish, known less descriptively as “de Beaufort’s flathead.”

It’s also an ambush predator, so if you happen to be a small crustacean, don’t get too close.

There it is!

(Who am i kidding? I’ve got nothing; near as i can tell there’s no fish at all)

Most of the picture, in fact, is one very large fish. The flat bill is on the lower right, and the tail is on the upper left. Just right of center is one circular eye looking straight at you, helping to measure whether you’d make a proper snack.

well, at least I picked up the bill in the lower right quadrant, but not the tail. Excellent camouflage.
