The strange and extremely cryptic frogfish have adapted a very interesting way to hunt. They Fish. Frogfish have a modified dorsal spine that they use as a fishing rod. For bait, a fleshy appendage at the end, which they flick up and down, just like a lure. When an unsuspecting fish comes in for a bite, the Frogfish opens its wide, protruding mouth, and sucks them in whole. Sometimes its prey is almost as big as the Frogfish itself. Looking just like a sponge attached to the substrate, fish are none the wiser that there is danger lurking behind the tasty looking lure.
This pretty little one is about an inch in length!...
