The Leaf Scorpionfish is a small and compressed fish that has the ability to rock its body back and forth through the water mimicking the momentum of a drifting leaf. This allows them to blend into their surroundings and become less noticeable to predators.

They are fascinating creatures, being almost perfectly camouflaged to their coral reef habitats.
