This #sergeantbaker fish was caught out of Sydney heads!
It's a member of the Aulopidae and can grow up to 60cm. They feed of the bottom of the ocean. Making the deep reef environments their home and will readily take lures and any bait!
Not the best eating, but a beautiful coloured fish 🐟
Buntbarsche sind wunderschöne Tiere, nicht nur im Verhalten sondern auch im Aussehen. Kleine Raubtiere sind sie auch, denn wenn man genau schaut haben sie kleine Zähne.🤤😀🦈 Abboniert uns um nichts mehr zu verpassen!
Silver arowana jumping out for food! 🤪
That’s why so many arowanas break their jaw because of jumping towards the acuarium top

Mosasaurs are an extinct group of large marine reptiles containing 38 genera in total. Their first fossil remains were discovered in a limestone quarry at Maastricht on the Meuse in 1764. Mosasaurs probably evolved from an extinct group of aquatic lizards known as aigialosaurs in the Early Cretaceous. During the last 20 million years of the Cretaceous period (Turonian-Maastrichtian ages), with the extinction of the ichthyosaurs and pliosaurs, mosasaurs became the dominant marine predators. They became extinct as a result of the K-Pg event at the end of the Cretaceous period, about 66 million years ago.
Mosasaurs breathed air, were powerful swimmers, and were well-adapted to living in the warm, shallow inland seas prevalent during the Late Cretaceous period. Mosasaurs were so well adapted to this environment that they gave birth to live young, rather than returning to the shore to lay eggs as sea turtlesdo.
The smallest-known mosasaur was Dallasaurus turneri, which was less than 1 m (3.3 ft) long. Larger mosasaurs were more typical, with many species growing longer than 4 m (13 ft). Mosasaurus hoffmannii, the largest known species, may have reached up to 17 m (56 ft) in length. Currently, the largest publicly exhibited mosasaur skeleton in the world is on display at the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre in Morden, Manitoba. The specimen, nicknamed "Bruce", is just over 13 m (43 ft) long. #marinebiology#whaleshark#jaw#greatwhiteshark#fish#lamnidae#organism#mouth#underwater#tigershark#lamniformes#shark#cartilaginousfish#deepseafish#wildlife#crocodile#tropical#coral#reeftank#water#swimming#ocean#freshwater#fishporn#paeontology#beautiful#reef#photooftheday#tropicalfish#dinosaur
