ROCK HIND / "THE JACK" OR "GROUPER"

Epinephelus adscensionis

A stealthy character, either sitting on rocks hoping you cannot see him or moving quickly and unobtrusively around rocks. The rock hind varies in size from small to quite large, the three black blotches on its back among all the spots being the distinguishing feature.
