One of the scariest looking fish in the sea. This lie-in-wait predator hides the bulk of his body in the sand and has a specially evolved, upward facing mouth.

The Mimic octopus is amongst the rarest and most highly sought after by divers. First discovered in 1998, it has evolved into a master of disguise, able to mimic a lionfish, flounder, a sea snake and many others.

This fish perches on pectoral fins and gently sways in the current, much like a leaf in the wind.

Mantis Shrimp's eyes are amongst the most advanced in the whole world and they see in colours which we can't even imagine. Pictured here is a Lisa's Mantis Shrimp.

The Doughnut Nudibranch is a tiny sea slug which gets its name from the circular appendages on its back.

Boxer Crab
       
     
Boxer Crab

Resembling a miniature, underwater cheerleader, the Libia Crab is more famously know as the Pom Pom or Boxer Crab. The pom poms are actually living anemones which it uses to mop up food and defend itself from predators.

Wire Coral Crab & Eggs

This crab might not be much of a looker but it has a sturdy carapace and if you look closely you'll see bagfuls of eggs held close to its body.

In my opinion one of the top 3 most attractive shrimp in the world, Harlequins live in pairs and feed on sea stars.
