The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

NICE CATCH: Spot­ted at South Soli­tary Is­land, this cor­morant was lucky enough to come across a fresh feed of red rock cod. The bird pad­dled around with it in its beak be­fore lift­ing up its head and swal­low­ing it whole. Red rock cod are also known as the eastern red scor­pi­onfish and have 12 ven­omous spines on their dor­sal fins. You wouldn’t want to think of one of these flip­ping around in­side your belly.
