Sandy / rock pools
Small, about 50mm in length. Ghostlike when swimming against light sand, but when caught in net immediately changed to a dark black colour. Very large eyes which looked out of proportion with it's body. Covered in lots of pigmented 'freckles' that changed colour to blend into background. When released, buried itself in the sand so that only it's eyes protruded. Liam Berry
