Three kinds of flounders are found along the state's coast--the summer flounder, the southern flounder, and the Gulf flounder. The summer flounder is the most common. Its flat shape makes for a life spent at the bottoms of estuaries and tidal creeks. The flounder hunts by covering itself with sand and ambushing its prey. It has the ability to camouflage itself to match its surroundings. It is also famous for its taste, especially after it has been stuffed with crab meat and dredged in butter.
