General info about Striated Frogfish
The Striated Angler Fish is a member of the Antennariidae family. With a body of striped brown and tan, several projections give it more of an ornate rock-like appearance than that of a fish. These fish will alter its color to blend into its background, as can be seen in the above photo. The Striated Angler Fish feeds by ambush, lying in wait for an unsuspecting fish or crustacean to go by and then lunging forward, grabbing and swallowing the victim whole. The Striated Angler Fish has been known to attract prey and eat it nearly equal to its own size.
