Caption: Raggy scorpionfish (Scorpaenopsis venosa) camouflaged on coral. This solitary fish camouflages itself against corals and sponges waiting to ambush its prey of crustaceans and small fish. It inhabits the Indo-Pacific region and reaches lengths of 25 centimetres. It has a row of spines on its back that are linked to poison glands. When threatened it raises the spines in defence. Photographed in the Andaman Sea, Thailand.
