Description

IF you are a fan of Frog Fish like me, you will find yourself running into the very same problems I do each and every time I find one while diving, “What frigging species is this one?”. It’s almost a full time job some days trying to figure it out and I’ll be honest, fish ID books pay Frog Fish very little attention, for some reason those books focus heavily on the smaller fishes like Gobies, Damsel, Anthias, and on Sharks, Rays, Eels and things people tend to see more of, Frog Fish are rare, and extremely good at hiding, so maybe that’s why they don’t get the same kind of attention.

Thankfully there is a resource to help us, I found it while in another ID frenzy, it’s called Zubi’s Frogfish Photos, I don’t personally know Zubi, but I thank him/her for their contribution and the time it saves me. Check it out if you are ever having trouble ID’ing a Frog Fish!

The one pictured here is a small Painted Frog Fish, the spots on the fins and body give it away. He was walking around on the silty floor trying to get onto the rope swinging in the current, I love watching them walk and tried to capture it a little bit in this photo, enjoy!

Porcelain Anemone Crab Feeding In Space

Lots of divers have seen Porcelain Anemone Crabs before, but few stop to wonder how they feed. Actually most crabs are scavengers, they will hunt at night eating dead or decaying fish and other organic waste they find, but some crabs have developed other ways of feeding to better suit their lifestyl [...]

Tiger Tail Sea Horse

It is always a beautiful day when you find Sea Horse while diving, they are such weird little underwater specimens that you can't help but sit and stare, occasionally I remember to take photographs of them. Sygnathiformes are notoriously hard critters to take quality photos of, they have a habit of [...]

Smiling Bamboo Shark

On a day with insanely strong current and 1 meter visibility I decided to go hunt for one of my favourite subjects, Sharks! Thankfully I know where a few Bamboo Sharks like to hide out during the day and thankfully they were where I had hoped. During the day these little guys, only about 4 feet l [...]

Sleepy Leopard Shark

I always say that underwater photography requires a lot of luck to get the right shots. This one is no different, we dropped in on our dive site, and my buddy immediately started pointing at the ground at about 18 Meters, I looked down and there was a Leopard Shark, resting on the sand in fairly str [...]
