Fish of the Day – Boxfish

One of my favourite fish is a boxfish. The one in the photo is a Spotted Boxfish.

The males are blue sided with white and gold tops and the females are black with white dots all over. They have a boxlike cross section, thus the name! We are always exited to see a Boxfish as they move like a helicopter – forward, backward, up, down and rotate.
