Caption: Leopard toadfish (Opsanus pardus) on a seabed. This bottom-dwelling predatory fish conceals itself on sand on the seafloor where it lies in wait to ambush its prey. The species inhabits waters along the Florida panhandle and the western coast of the Florida peninsula at depths greater than fifteen metres. Photographed at a shipwreck in the Gulf of Mexico, off San Pablo island, Florida, USA.
