Some Stonefish!

Stonefish

This sure is some stonefish! Spotted off the coast of Pemba Island, 20 meters below in Fundu Gap, the brightly colored and intricately patterned fish (Synanceia verrucosa) was perched quietly on a ledge of a coral wall drop-off, waiting most patiently to snatch-up a passing fish. Stonefish are one of the most venomous fish in the world, their stings are even fatal to humans! (If only I knew that before getting so close!)
