Lightning in the eye of the scorpionfish.  Did you know scorpionfish are venomous and that they are 'suction-feeders'?  This one was photographed in the Lembeh Strait.

Did you know that the Wunderpus Photogenicus has a look-alike? The Mimic octopus is very similar! And did you know that the markings on the body is similar to our finger prints?

Did you know that Goliath Groupers can weigh up to 360 kgs and that they only reach maturity around 180 kgs?

This grouper was photographed in Cuba and was very inquisitive, as almost all groupers. I really feel like it is posing for the camera.
