This video compares and contrasts two Crocodilefish (Papilloculiceps longiceps) in Chole Bay; one camouflaged on a coral reef approximately 10 meters deep and the other on a sandy, grassy patch in shallow water.

Creativity is all about connecting things, so with experience in interior design and architecture, I arranged the video as per an architectural design with plan, front, side, rear and detail perspectives.  Here is a break down of the six sections in the video for Crocodilefish:

Section 1 – Zoomed out plan views
Section 2 – Plan views
Section 3 – Front views
Section 4 – Side view
Section 5 – Rear view
Section 6 – Details etc

Footage was shot by a GoPro Hero 3 while scuba diving off the coast of Mafia Island, Tanzania.The spines on the  gill cover are reported to be venomous and can inflict a painful wound.  Squirrelfish are closely related to Soldierfish.
