Leaf Scorpion Fish

Paperfish

A ghostly white leaf scorpian fish Taenianotus triacanthus, also known as a paperfish, lies motionless resembling a dead leaf lying in the water. The paperfish resembles a leaf in many ways with a large mouth and head and a dark line through it’s eyes. It even makes gentle sideways movements in its pelvic area which make it look like a drifting object.
