FFF-July 17th

Posted on July 17, 2015 at 1:45 PM

This week's FFF is about the Pacific Spiny Lumpsucker. Anyone who has done any amount of diving off our coast has probably seen one of these little guys.. They are the CUTEST! (Obviously I mean that in the most masculine way possible).  

These small fish are 2.5-7.6 cm (1-3 in). The largest found to date was 12.7 cm (5 in) but this size is rare. They are more commonly about 2.5 cm (1 inch) in size.  But finding them as juvenile where I've seen them to be just a few millimeters long is amazing.

These lumpsuckers are solitary by nature and are usually found alone. Inefficient swimmers because of their spherical body and small fins, when disturbed, spiny lumpsuckers aimlessly change directions. They use rocks and seaweeds for hiding places.

As a little bonus, i've included a picture of a PSL (Pacific Spiny Lumpsucker) that my partner made by needle felting wool. :)
