Aquatic Critters

SculpinSculpin, 2 to 4 inch (5 - 10 cm) long fish, are commonly found in streams that are kept cold by spring water. They can be found in both silty and rocky riffles and pools. They lie motionless in one spot and move in quick darting dashes. Sculpin have the ability to blend in with their surroundings, which is useful in escaping from enemies and in capturing their prey by ambush.
