Lions’ den

Two lionfish, trailing their elaborate manes with 18 venomous spines, linger in a cave with slender roughy and yellow-banded perch.

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Listen carefully, you can hear the echo-location clicks that allow roughy and bigeyes to navigate in the darkness of the cave.
