My first local sighting of a frogfish! 15 Sep 2011

The post headliner says it all šŸ˜€

I’d only heard of frogfishes in Singapore, never having the luck to see one for myself. Thanks to Chay Hoon, who found this little fellow in a fish trap at Semakau, I now have an image of it as well!

This could be a Painted Frogfish (Antennarius pictus), on account of it’s slightly less warty skin (compared to a similar looking fellow, the Warty Frogfish, Antennarius maculatus).
