  • The beautiful Sargassum Frogfish is one of my all time favorite species of animals to find when on the gulf of Mexico. These shallow sea anglerfish spend their entire lives hunting in and around the floating sargassum mats in the gulf and Atlantic feeding primarily on crustaceans and small fish. Shallow sea anglerfish use modified fins as arms to move around through the tangles and gaps in the sargassum as they stalk prey. Once they spot and unsuspecting prey item they create a vacuum by opening their mouths extremely fast and suck up their food! Aren't these fish so cool and camouflaged? Did you know about the Sargassum frogfish? Let us know in the comments.

    I think all frogfish are cool, but Sargassum Frogfish are easily one of the coolest! I’ve always been fascinated by the sargassum microecosystem, there is so much endemic life and I’ve always wanted to see it for myself. That shot of the frogfish eating was amazing, I bet there isn’t much footage of that on TheXvid. Fantastic work!

    Best kind of treasure hunt. For weird and cool animals. I have to admit I have never heard of frogfish before. Evolution works in weird ways. Lets give a fish hands!
