Caption

Leopard flounder in sand. Close-up of the head of a Leopard flounder camouflaged on the seabed. The leopard flounder (Bothus pantherinus), which grows to about 35 centimetres in length, is able to change its colour to some extent to match its surroundings. This fish is found on the sandy bottoms of coastal coral reefs and lagoons in the Indo-Pacific. It often buries itself in the sand, leaving only its eyes exposed. From this position the fish will jump out on its prey of crustaceans and small fish. Photographed off Rinca Island, Komodo National Park, Indonesia.
