An adult Longhorn Cowfish (Lactoria comuta) hunting for food in the ocean floor on the muck shore dive at Basura in Anilao in the Batangas region of The Philippines. Cowfish can blow on the sand with their mouth moving sand out of the way to expose their prey.

The pair of long horns are an obvious identifier for this species.
