Giant Swimming Frog-Fish

Occurred on August 28, 2017 / Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia

Info from Licensor: "We spotted this Frog-fish at a dive site. This dive site is known for its giant frog-fish sightings, and we saw six during this dive. Usually they are stationary and rely on camouflage to hunt. This one was restless and on the move in search for a new spot. You can clearly see it use jet propulsion to swim. These fish lack a swim bladder and are not able to swim as normal fish do. They suck in water through their mouth and expel this again through an opening on the side of their body. You can see this happening in this video."
