As you can see on the tail, there’s another frogfish nearby, but this one is more interesting, that’s why I chose to take a shot of this black one

    Kalo diliat-liat kayak muka sangar tapi pake pita di kepala :D

  2. Wolfgang Krutz says:

    Fantastic creature, but it looks like you guys created a sand storm down there…

  3. Irene Pramudito says:

    OMG!!! I can’t get over how ADORABLE they are!! Too cute!!

  4. Erwin Kodiat says:

    Another possibility, this black one hide themselves by burying their bodies into the sand …. or maybe you’re right since we got 22 divers that time he he he

    Good pic, I wish I had changed my battery then. You’re wrong Wolfie, we didn’t have any sand storm while Erwin took this shot. I was there as the lighting man. The sand on the fish body was the result of previous sand storm and the effort of the fish to burry itself in the sand.

  6. Mulyadi Setiono says:

    same thought Wolfie, but even 70 minutes later after the stormy fins’re long gone this guy still has sands sticking all over

    bagus juga sebab jarang ada tu
