Hi! My name is Xan and I'm a studio art and paleontology major. I love the outdoors, science, music, art, and really anything nerdy. My favorite bands are The E Street Band, Counting Crows, and the Band. I occasionally post my own art and doodles as well. Ask me anything if you're curious ever.

Warty Frogfish (Antennarius maculatus)
Also known as the Clown Frogfish, the warty frogfish is a species of frogfish (Antennariidae) that inhabits tropical waters in the Indo-Pacific, ranging from Mauritius to the western Pacific. Like other frogfish Antennarius maculatus is a benthic species and inhabits sheltered rocky and coral reefs. Adult A. maculatus typically associate themselves with sponges, using camouflage to ambush any animal that wanders too close.
