SUPER SURPRISE THURSDAY #50

We’re taking the E & E sub out today to find a fish who looks like a fruit! Whaaaaat you ask! Well, we are in search of a cool and amazing fish who is yellow and black! We have room for everyone, so let’s head out to meet…

MEET THE PINEAPPLE FISH!

   Range/Habitat: Indo-Pacific Oceans

   Diet: Carnivore: fish, invertebrates

   Length/Weight: up to 11”/ up to 18 oz

   Conservation Status: common

 

 

 

Fun Facts:

  • 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 :)!
