This frogfish looks just like its rocky seafloor perch—a guise to tempt a potential meal into coming a bit too close. The fish can change texture and even color to blend with its surroundings. It can also lure potential prey with a fleshy “fishing rod” complete with a wormlike lure. The frogfish is so well adapted to life on the bottom that it uses pectoral fins to waddle, rather than swim, along the seafloor.
