- hung
Thelast one is a Leafy Sea Dragon, a rather bizarre seahorse, native to the tropical South Pacific, and well camouflaged among the seaweeds. The next to last (the yellow one) is a Frogfish, belonging to afamily (Antennariidae) which includes the Sargasso Fishand Anglerfishes whichare ambush predators thatbait prey with an appendage that resemmbles a wiggling worm (not shown in this picture)and sucks in prey whenthey opentheir large mouths.

Good pictures - not the easiest to take u nder the conditions.
