But what is this funny animal so hard to find among corals and other colored drops?

Toadfish, fishing fish or more commonly known as frogfish is found in all the warm seas of the globe (it likes water at minimum 20 °). You can observe it in shallow bottoms even if certain families of this species can evolve in depths between -1000 and -3000 m Relatively small, frogfish shows us an aspect that may seem to us somewhat Deformed. Her body is covered with small thorns and sometimes warts. It’s not very nice but very spectacular.

With fins in the form of webbed legs, frogfish is the king of camouflage. But do not be deceived, frogfish is a lonely predator but voracious. It attracts its prey through a lure placed over its mouth. However it is not dangerous for divers.

Frogfish is easy to observe (once found) as it stays motionless or moves very slowly. There are many species of frog fish with several colors and size.
