21 Northern Stargazer

The stargazer fish is found mostly along the sand beds of shallow waters in the Atlantic Ocean. The stargazer will camouflage into its surroundings by burying itself under the sand so only the eyes and the mouth can be seen - the reason why it was given the name stargazer. This fish uses it's lip to catch it's prey. It quivers it's lower lip, mimicking the movements of a worm to attract the prey, then it creates a vacuum inside its mouth to suck the prey in. Stargazers are a lethal fish because they have two poisonous spines located on each side of the body. Not only are the spines of the stargazer poisonous, but they are electrifying as well. They can discharge about 50 volts of electricity at a time. Stargazers are known to be aggressive fish and have even attacked humans - especially night divers. Although the stargazer only ranges from approximately 18-90 centimeters long, they come with quite a punch.
