Image of a “Paddleflap Scorpionfish”taken at a dive site called “Noisy Reef” near Seraya in Bali.The fish gets its name from the odd shape of its mouth & is solitary fish preferring a muddy or silty area to inhabit,first time I have seen one of these amazing animals

    Hi Matt, this is an AMAZING scorpionfish, and such a great shot to show off it’s bizarre features. Thanks for posting it and saying where you found it roughly! We passed through Bali on the way to Wakatobi (off Sulawesi) last year, and now I’m thinking we should have spent some time diving in Bali… ah darn, we might have to think about going back… twist my arm!

  • I’m twisting it right now :-),yeah easilt overlooked,I went to Flores last August & didnt even think about Bali although we stopped over.The diving was really great I would highly recommend spending at least a week
