Western Red Scorpioncod

The Western Red Scorpioncod has extremely venomous spines and contact should be avoided. The shot is the final posting from my dive last Thursday at Robbs Jetty just south of Fremantle in Western Australia. This variety varies in colour depending on the depth of water it is living in - the deeper the water the more red coloured. This one was only around 8 metres deep and is more brown.
