Alex Mustard - Small Fish, Big Mouth

The arrow blenny (Lucayablennius zingaro) may be tiny, but this is still a voracious predator of the coral reef, feeding on both fish and crustaceans. This one yawns as it hovers in the water, with its tail cocked ready to send its streamlined body shooting forward to catch its prey. Caribbean Sea.

Location: Cayman Islands, Caribbean Sea.
