Im sorry, but video content will be enabled in an upcoming update. In the mean time, take a look around our amazing images provided by the awesome community here at Whats That Fish.
Also known as Ambon Stingfish, Ambon Firefish, Ambon Goblinfish, Ambon Rockfish and Hairy Scorpionfish.
These shaggy scorpionfish with large growths above eyes, are often found in pairs on the ocean floor, on dark sand and amongst debris.
They feed on fish and swimming invertebrates.
Length - 8cm
Depth - 10-50m
Scorpionfish are masters of camouflage, enabling them to lie in wait for their victims to come close, before lunging forward and inhaling their prey with their large mouths.
When disturbed they raise the spines along their backs and will usually move off out of harms way, however, if cornered they are able to charge at considerable speed.
Highly dangerous and poisonous with venomous spines along its back if trodden on etc., can cause death!
