This ugly critter is called a crocodile fish, or sometimes a giant flathead. It’s about 1m long and lies around thinking that its camouflage is so good that it cannot be seen, but it doesn’t know how good the dive guides are at spotting things like this! I heard that three of these were spotted together on a dive a few days before, but no pictures have been provided yet so this may be another “divers tale”.
