Caption: Variegated Lizardfish, Synodus variegatus, can grow to 18cm (7in.). Usually found in shallow water sandy bottoms of lagoons and seaward reefs. They are ambush predators that look like a reptile and use camouflage to fool prey. They lack a gas bladder so either must rest on the bottom or be in motion. Photographed in Hawaii.
