Caption: White-margin stargazer fish (Uranoscopus sulphureus) half buried in the sandy seabed. This fish lies camouflaged in the sand until prey comes close, upon which it engulfs it with a sudden gulp of its large, upward-facing mouth. It feeds mainly on small fish and crustaceans. Filmed in the Lembeh Strait, Sulawesi, Indonesia.
