Description

It was a big guy (about 2m long) gently lying on the sandy bottom, just next to the ledge-shaped reef. We spent about ten minutes there, keeping a good distance to avoid disturbance. Yet, remoras stalked it :-)

Note the widely spotted back - sometimes spots are only concentrated along the flanks.
