Popeyed Scorpionfish

A popeyed scorpionfish Rhinopias frondosa, also known as the weedy scorpionfish, has a highly compressed body and can vary in color and appendages depending on its environment. Popeyed scorpionfish found in rocky, algae rich waters are covered in weed-like appendages, whereas others found in deeper soft-bottomed waters with soft corals and sponges have fewer appendages.
