Sargassum Frogfish

Histrio histrio

Guardians: Kylie Matthyssen & Nicole Paul

“Not everyone should be a vegetarian, what would happen to us Sargassum Weed if the Frogfish became vegetarians, granted it is probably better if they stopped eating their own children, but they are the perfect guardians. They look like us and they have these incredible hand-like fins so they can hold on to our branches and climb unnoticeably towards their victims: nasty skin-shredding, sap-sucking, limb-munching herbivores. Everyone knows if you have a meat-eating Frogfish with you, you grow and if you don’t, the vegetarians will devour you”.
