Sand Diver (Lizardfish) GALLERY

Synodus intermedius

These lizardfish are common, but are often missed because they remain absolutely still and blend into their surroundings by changing their skin color to match it. Their body shape says speed and their large mouth, filled with rows of needle sharp teeth means they can strike their prey swiftly and silently. Find them sitting on rocks or partially buried in the sand. Can be observed in water as shallow as 5 feet.  Also see the Inshore Lizardfish or Galliwasp
