Camouflaged scorpionfish (Scorpaenopsis sp., top). A scorpionfish is a solitary fish that hides around rocks and marine plants, and then ambushes its prey of crustaceans, other invertebrates and small fish. A scorpionfish has a row of spines on its back, linked to poison glands for defence. The venom is dangerous to humans who may step on a camouflaged scorpionfish.
