Scorpion City...

Had a great session today in the harbour catching lots of little Scorpion fish (Taurulus Bubalis). I think these little fish have to be one of my favourite fish, in spite of their size these little rockfish are voracious rock pool predators. I just wish I could catch some of their larger relatives, the Short Spined Sea Scorpion (Myoxocephalus Scorpius).
