Bull sculpin, Enophrys taurina

Bull sculpin, Enophrys taurina
I originally mistook this bull sculpin (Enophrys taurina) for the very
similar buffalo sculpin (Enophrys bison). The latter is commonly seen by
divers in the Pacific Northwest, but would have been quite unusual to see in
Carmel Bay. Despite the initial misidentification, the sighting of this fish was
still of interest. This is, in fact, the only bull sculpin I have ever seen.
