Trunkfish are one of our favourite fishes. They are triangular in cross section, spotted and have big eyes and cute lips. They search for food by blowing on the sand and then gobble up lunch. This is what an adult looks like…..
We are always in search of juveniles. They juvenile trunkfish is very special as it looks like a dice. They are hard to find because they are so tiny and they flit around under neath corals, never staying still long enough to be spotted.
Today, K makes the big find and spots one on our second dive. He is gorgeous! I take six photos hoping that one comes out clear and recognizable. If you look closely you can see his eye and his nose.
Isn’t he cute! What a find!
