There’s camouflage and then there’s camouflage in brightly colored clown frogfish style. Also known as the warty frogfish, because its skin is covered with lots of little wart-like bulging bits, this marine tropical fish is found in the western Pacific Ocean and in the Indian Ocean between Reunion Island and Mauritius. Mostly found living in rocky, coral reefs, to a depth of about 20 m (66 ft), these weird sea creatures live a solitary life, except when they mate. The male is known to kill and even eat the female clown frogfish if she stays too close to him.
