baby batfish in Little Cayman

I just returned from a great trip to Little Cayman. Everyone there was quite excited about 2 baby batfish found near Jacksons Bay Wall. According to local divemasters they are the first batfish ever found there and they are so small and cute in their ugly sort of way. They are living in the open sand and are about the size of a US nickel. The second picture shows the size relative to a caribiner clip.
