WATERY WENESDAY # 64
We’re taking the E & E sub out to the coral reefs of Indonesia today! Anyone notice a theme this week? Apparently our travel budget is getting smaller and we have to stay in one area! J We’re on the lookout for a small, funny looking fish on this adventure so keep your eyes peeled!
MEET THE BOXFISH!
Diet: Carnivore: invertebrates
Length/Weight: up to 18”
Conservation Status: common
- Boxfish have rigid outer skeletons.
- Boxfish are squared in shape.
- They are also called the long-horned cowfish.
- They have two hornlike projections on top of their head.
- Boxfish swim very awkwardly because of small fins.
- Boxfish have large eyes on top of their eyes.
Ooooooo… Boxfish sure are funny looking. We wish they had only one horn so we could rename them the unicorn fish. Hahahahaha!
