Caption: Mimic filefish (Paraluteres prionurus). This fish inhabits coral reefs in the Indo-Pacific region. This harmless fish mimics the poisonous saddled puffer fish (Canthigaster valentini). It not only looks like this fish but also mimics its behaviour to avoid predation. Photographed off Bunaken, Sulawesi, Indonesia.
