Caption: Head of a frogfish (Antennarius multiocellatus) , close-up. Like other frogfish, it uses its excellent cryptic coloration and texture to mimic sponges and rocks, allowing it to avoid detection by predators and prey. It typically eats smaller fish, engulfing them with a sudden gulp when they come too close. Frogfish are found in almost all the worldsÂ’ seas and oceans. Filmed in the Caribbean Sea.
