Crocodilefish

Close-up of a crocodilefish (Papilloculiceps longiceps), spotted on a scubadive at Kankadya in Dar es Salaam. Crocodilefish are ambush predators, so camouflage is key. Notice how even the outline of the eye is broken up with the branch-like tentacle covering. Learn more about Crocodilefish here.
