After being spotted first by instructors Nadhia and Jo, long time serving instructor John Butler could make this amazing picture on the house reef of Red Sea Waterworld in Taba. “At first sight I couldn’t really believe what I saw”, John said. While Nadhia and Jo saw the parrotfish sticking out half way John could only see a bit of tail sticking out of the mouth of the stone fish. “It was an unbelievable sight as the stonefish just ate something that was the size of itself”.

You could compare it with a human gorging up a lam in one go. Burps:-). Three days later the stonefish was still on the house reef with a full and round belly.
