Commerson’s Frogfish (Antennarius commerson)

Also known as the giant frogfish, Commerson’s frogfish is a species of frogfish (Antennariidae) which occurs in tropical and subtropical waters from the Indian Ocean to the eastern coasts of the Pacific Ocean. Commerson’s frogfish typically inhabit sheltered rocky and coral reefs, where they are usually associated with big sponges, and rock formations. Like other frogfishes A. commerson is adept at camouflage, and is able to blend into different surroundings with ease allowing it to ambush any animal unfortunate enough to pass by.
