The mouth is broad with many small teeth. The coloring varies, but is generally mottled with browns, greens and reds. >90% of red fish are males, whereas >90% of green fish are females. It reaches up to 99 cm (3 ft 3 in) in length and 14 kg (31 lb) in weight, while the largest ever Cabezon caught was 25 lb (11 kg) in weight and longest being 39 in (99 cm). As the Spanish-origin name implies, the fish has a very large head relative to its body. They are found in a wide range of habitats at depths of 0–200 m (0–656 ft), including rocky, muddy and sandy bottoms, and kelp beds.
