In resembling an algae-encrusted rock, the Papuan Scorpionfish is a master of disguise. Camouflaged by an array of frilly, ornate appendages and filamentous outgrowths, they disappear amid the coral rubble and sand on which they rest. Described as puzzling in appearance, dangerous to touch, and murder on their prey, these fringed and mottled predators rely on deception, stealth and lightning-quick reflexes to capture a passing meal. New Britain, Papua New Guinea.
