The paddle-flap scorpionfish (Rhinopias eschmeyeri) is an extremely rare variety of scorpionfish that can be found throughout the Indo-West Pacific. These ornately decorated scorpionfish are poor swimmers and are most often seen "walking" along the seafloor using their pelvic fins as legs. They do not have teeth, so they swallow their prey whole. We photographed this one in Anilao, Philippines. Read more in our post, Biodiversity from the Muck to the Reef: Scuba Diving Anilao, Philippines.
