Map pufferfish (Arothron mappa) resting on a submerged shipwreck. This fish can inflate itself, which it uses as a form of protection. The colouration of this pufferfish serves as camouflage in its habitat of coral reefs in the Indo-Pacific. It eats crustaceans and molluscs, attacking them with its strong, beak-like jaws. Photographed in Malaysia.
