Andaman fish expert Dr Thatsaphaphon Krajangdara did manage to throw some light on the discovery saying that it was known as Pla Uk in Thai or Pla Upayak. There were different names in different regions but it was found in both the Gulf and the Andaman and was an important part of marine ecology.

Incidentally, I met a bar girl once who looked like a fish. Needless to say I didn't get hooked.

Was she two faced and gutless ?

A benthic fish that lies on its stomach submerged in sandy areas with only its upward focused eyes visible. It's an ambush predator.

Seen a few of those on Patong beach in my time.

Any scuba diver could have told them it's a "Stargazer." A benthic fish that lies on its stomach submerged in sandy areas with only its upward focused eyes visible. It's an ambush predator.

An old one who lost his dentures. Actually those aren't teeth...those frilly appendages around the mouth are skin growths mimicking worms and such to attract fish to its moutn
