Warty frogfish (Antennarius maculatus), Ambon, Indonesia

A pair of warty frogfish (Antennarius maculatus). The female is heavily laden with eggs.
We saw nearly 20 different frogfish while we were in Ambon, including warty frogfish, painted frogfish, striated frogfish and more. This female warty is full of eggs. You can see the tiny little male sitting on top of her.
