Cool for cats

A Philippines dive shot I don't think I've put up before - these are coral catfish, Plotosus lineatus.


They school together when young and stripey (adults are grey and ugly) and form these balls. The effect is a rather disorienting and its very difficult to pick out single cat. Great example of disruptive colouration and really, really weird to watch moving over the reef.
