Caption

Raggy scorpionfish (Scorpaenopsis venosa) camouflaged on coral. This solitary fish camouflages itself against corals and sponges waiting to ambush its prey of crustaceans and small fish. It inhabits the Indo-Pacific region and reaches lengths of 25 centimetres. It has a row of spines on its back that are linked to poison glands. When threatened it raises the spines in defence. Photographed in the Andaman Sea, Thailand.
