Stargazer and diver in the Lembeh Strait
Stargazers are a family of perciform fish that have eyes on top of their heads . They are ambush predators and are found worldwide in shallow and deep saltwaters. Stargazers are venomous; they have two large venomous spines situated behind their opercles and above their pectoral fins. They like to bury themselves in sand and wait for prey to come close. They also have a worm-shaped lure growing out of the floors of their mouths, which they can wiggle to attract prey's attention.
