 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

Nature is wonderful, as the little fish featured in this video shows.

Hardly bigger than your fingernail, this juvenile Whiteblotched sole, Soleichthys maculosus, has evolved to mimic a flatworm, most probably Pseudobiceros scintillatus.

The fish was filmed in Bali, Indonesia. You can find out more about it on The Blennywatcher Blog.
