Scorpionfish - a master of camouflage
Famous for their frowns, scorpionfish seem to have a disproportionately large head and mouth. What’s really cool about them is that they change colour to blend with their background.
The sea slug Tambja verconis
It's tempting to think that this sea slug is mowing the lawn. But it's not feeding on a plant at all. Instead what it's grazing is the blue bryozoan Bugula dentata, a colonial filter-feeding animal that has a digestive system, nervous system and brain.
The New Zealand spindle cowry
It's hard to say whether these delicate molluscs are rare or simply rarely seen in New Zealand. They seem to live in that diving no man's land between normal recreational limits (30 metres) and technical diving depths (45+ metres).
