Scientists captured this unsuspecting goby, just 1.5 cm long

September 14, 2005
While pursuing a larger fish, scientists happened to capture this unsuspecting goby, just 1.5 cm long. There are more than 2,000 species of goby found around the world. This family of fish includes the smallest of all vertebrate species. Many are amazingly cryptic. Depending on the species, these bottom-dwelling fish can be found living in crevices, burrows, or shell material on reefs or more exposed substrates.
