A Living Sculpin

I've posted a couple times on the blob sculpin, but they've always been shots of ones recently snagged on the fishing line. This time, however, I am pleased to bring you an image of one that is still living.

Surprisingly, the blob sculpin's got something of an endearing spikey, thick-lipped charm to it. I see a plush toy in the future.

Thanks for the link, Ida.

He's fabulous -- he looks like a big, stuffed pillow!

That is pretty darn cute! Those big pouty fishlips make it look adorable!
