Estuarine Stonefish Video Stock Footage

The maximum length of the species is up to 60 cm (2 ft). It is drab in colour, brownish to reddish brown, which aids in its ability to camouflage itself among the rocks of many of the tropical reefs. It shares many characteristics with Synanceia verrucosa, but has more elevated eyes than that species. It has a sedentary habit, operating as an ambush predator, but can quickly open its mouth to gulp in its prey. It eats mostly small fish, shrimp and other crustaceans, waiting until its prey swims nearby. It was first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1766. Learn more about Estuarine Stonefish
