Snakehead toadfish

The Snakehead toadfish lives in the demersal, brackish, marine environment.

The snakehead toadfish is smaller, attaining only 10 cm in length. Sightings of it are very infrequent, as it prefers to stay under rocks and boulders. The best place to find it, with some luck, is under the jetty in Simon's Town harbour. More
