WATERY WENESDAY # 47
It’s Watery Wednesday and we’re going diving in a Pacific coral reef to meet a fish who can blow a mean horn! Ok, they can’t actually play the trumpet, but they are pretty cute! Let’s do this!
MEET THE TRUMPETFISH!
Diet: Carnivore: small fish
Length: up to 32”
Conservation Status: common
- Trumpetfish have long slender bodies and long snouts.
- They are ambush predators.
- Trumpetfish are yellow or brown in color.
- They camouflage among the coral by floating vertically head down.
- Trumpetfish have small jaws and usually suck in their prey.
Trumpetfish are masters of camouflage! They just float around looking like coral til their prey swims by and grabs them! If you could camouflage in any habitat what would it be?
