October 23, 2017

A photo posted on Instagram by the National Geographic showcasing a sargassum frogfish in the Sargasso Sea got over 270,000 likes, with people admiring the close up depiction.

In captioning the image by underwater photographer David Doubilet, National Geographic said, “Can you see me? A camouflaged sargassum frogfish hides from predators in the floating golden canopy of algae called sargassum in the Sargasso Sea, Bermuda.

“Large mats of this floating algae form a living ceiling on the sea providing a nursery for larval species and critical shelter for other vulnerable marine species such as sea turtle hatchlings.”
