Another Frogfish at Anemone Thila!

11 Jan 2011

One of our guests couldn’t hide his amazement when he discovered a very strange fish on Anemone Thila.

Excitedly, he called Markus, one of our instructors, and showed him his discovery.  Markus was just as amazed –  A big pink-/orange coloured Giant Frogfish (Antennarius commerson) was sitting proudly on show in the middle of a big table coral.

Froggies are normally very hard to find due to the incredible camouflage they possess. This one could be colour-blind though as it is currently standing out like a sore thumb.

Although several species of Frog fish can be found in the Maldives, they are quite rare indeed.

Over the course of the next few days, we have been able to find the Frog fish again!  Lets hope it stays around for some time to come so that you can also be captivated by these freaky little fish!
