Allenbatrachus grunniens

1. February 2008

(01.Feb.2008) Toadfish – a funny name for a funny family, the Batrachoididae. There are only 73 representatives of this family worldwide. Their name is coming from noises which they can generate and sounds like the callings of toads. Toadfish have a venomously spine on the gills and their dorsal fin and when you catch them, they can bite
you pretty hard, so be careful in handling them! They require a sandy ground on which they ambush their prey. They should be fed with live fish. (Photo F.Schäfer, Text R.Neunkirchen)
