Queen Parrotfish

Scarus vetula


These parrotfishes hide in a crevice and secrete a protective mucus cocoon around themselves at night to sleep as you can see here. It is like a transparent bed sheet. It reduces the detection of the parrotfish's scent by predators, protecting them from attacks.


Bari Reef, Bonaire.
