Caption

Frogfish camouflaged on sponge. Giant frogfish (Antennarius commerson) perched on a yellow elephant ear sponge (Ianthella basta). This fish is an ambush predator. It blends into its surroundings and waits for passing prey, which it then sucks into its mouth at high speed. Photographed off Lembeh, Sulawesi, Indonesia.
