Black scorpionfish (Scorpaena porcus)

Small-scaled scorpion fish

The Small-scaled scorpion fish (Scorpaena porcus) is one of the common species
of scorpion fish in the mediterranean. It's camouflage is nearly perfect, and
divers often don't notice it until it moves next to their hands. But even
though they are poisonous the scorpion fish in the mediterranean are very
carefull to move away before they get touched.
