Actually out of the water amongst mussels, or on the wet rocks. When put into a bucket with sloping sides they apeared to try to 'climb' out.Close

Until now we just thought they were klipvisse behaving strangely, being out on the mussles and rocks, but on closer inspection they were 7cm long, smooth and uniformly coloured except for the pale marking on the head. The dorsal fin extended all the way along the body, ended in a discrete tail, and the ventral fin started quarter way down the body and ended at the tail. There are pectoral fins and the eyes are prominent. The nearest thing I could find, but the colours were wrong were free tailed botula!
