- Pineapple Fish get their name from their shape and color.
- They have sharp spines on their dorsal and pelvic fins.
- Pineapple fish have a bioluminescent organ on their lower jaw that they use to attract prey.
- Pineapple fish are nocturnal (active at night).
- They are found in deeper waters.
- Pineapple fish have armor-like scaled covering their bodies.
Pineapple fish are really cute, but our favorite thing about them is their bioluminescent organ! How neat it is that they have their own build in glow stick :)!
