Max. Size: 80 cm
Fun Fact: Despite this fish looking rather innocent, it is actually a master hunter on the coral reef. It hunts in the way that fish behaviorists refer to as “hunting by riding” (aka shadow stalking). This is where the trumpetfish uses another fish as a blind to sneak up on its unsuspecting quarry.
