Southern Tongue Sole (Cynoglossus broadhursti) Photographs and Information

Southern Tongue Sole. Also known as Broadhurst's Tongue Sole

It is a species of Tonguefish and is found in the northern half of Australia and the Indian Ocean.

Tonguefish are in the family of flat-fish such as Sole, Halibut, Flounder, Turbot and Brill.

Tonguefish are so named as their shape resembles a tongue.

Tongue Sole have both eyes on the one side of their head (asymmetrical). But Did You Know - when they are born, their eyes are on both sides (symmetrical) and gradually move to the one side as the fish grows.

Tongue Sole are bottom dwellers, often hiding themselves in the sand. Thus camouflaged, they are ambush predators but will also move into mid-water to feed. They also use this camouflage to avoid being eaten themselves!

Sole have white or light coloured under-bellies and their top sides are darker to match their environment to blend in. They often have wavy patterns. Some are able to change their color to match the surrounding background.
