Creature Feature: Longfin Waspfish

Not on the Top of the typical Critter Wishlist the Longfin Waspfish (Apistus carinatus) is still a Creature with WOW effect. This Member of the Scorpionfishes is not very common and can only be seen on some dive sites in Lembeh – normally in TK (Teluk Kembahu) 1-3.  It is mostly burried in the sand and usualy seen only at night. Characteristic are its Beard or whiskers and the distinctive pectoral fins that can be spread out like wings. Another typical feature are its brown body with the yellow/white “wings”. As all Scorpionfishes it can sting … so please don’t cuddle it 😉

Lens recommendation: 60mm or wider
