My wife and I found this one sitting in under a foot of water, no more than five feet off the beach on the east end of Grand Cayman. I think it's a Stone Fish, but would love confirmation from someone more informed than I.

Looks like a spotted scorpionfish. Don't think there are any true stone fish in the caribbean.

Ah, thanks for clarifying. Was very surprised to find it so close to the beach -- would've been quite the bad surprise to step on. (Thankfully, we glided past it on our way back from a snorkel.)
