In other observed feeding events, thestonefish oriented toward the prey prior to seizure. This strike zone adjustment was accomplished by a pitching and rolling movement of the body via a rocking motion produced by the pectoral fins (both sideways and back and forth). The strike could be adjusted within a 95' radius on both a longitudinal and transverse plane (Fig. 2a, 3a). A second mechanism for orientation of the strike zone was a twisting movement of the body in which the head of S. verrucosa moved to the side in a rolling-yawing motion.
