Underwater Photography 40/365 Angry Scorpion Fish

“Angry Scorpion Fish” Project Picture 40/365

When I saw this Red Scorpionfish “Scorpaena Scrofa” immediately reminded me of Jabba the Hutt from the star wars films, mainly because his angry appearance.

For those of you who don’t live near the mediterranean, let me tell you that they are relatives of the incredible Scorpion Fish or Lion Fish. Although they do not have such nice fins the tropical one has, and instead of swimming arround you will find them hidden on rocks.

They are venomous if touch but despite this fierce look they are not aggressive at all, although as their camouflage is really good and they can easily pass unnoticed, you should pay attention before you put your hand on a rock.

Cuando vi este Cabracho “Scorpaena Scrofa” inmediatamente me recordó a Jabba el Hutt de la pelicula la guerra de las galaxias, imagino que por su cara de enfado.
Para aquellos que no viven cerca del mediterráneo dejarme que os cuente que son primos de los espectaculares peces Escorpión o León. Aunque que no tienen las mismas aletas que el tropical, y en vez de verlos nadando se les suele ver escondidos en rocas.
Son venenosos si los tocas, pero a pesar de esta mirada feroz,no son para nada agresivos, aunque como su camuflaje es realmente bueno y puede pasar facilmente desapercibido,conviene prestar atención antes de poner la mano sobre una roca.
