We added some great images and movies this week. The Eastern Red Scorpionfish page has been updated to reflect the correct species name and an image of a juvenile Southern Red Scorpionfish was added. Thanks all!
The Mimic Octopus (Thaumoctopus mimicus) has been known for some years for its ability to mimic flatfish, lionfish and seasnakes. A recent discovery in Indonesia adds a whole new twist to this story. The Black-marble Jawfish (Stalix cf. histrio) mimics the Mimic Octopus. This is believed to allow the small fish to forage in relative safety well away from its burrow.
