This is a great example of a toadfish. They are called toadfish because they make a noise like a toad, which you don’t really hear as much as you feel it. They generally hide in holes and you don’t get to see them very often, so it was very unusual to see it out in the open. In fact it came out of its hole right in front of us and I was able to capture the entire process (1, 2 & 3),
What I find interesting about this shot is that is is using one of its fins to prop itself.
