Trumpetfish, Aulostomus maculatus


Trumpet Fish, originally uploaded by TRPhoto.

The Trumpetfish, Aulostomus maculatus, lives in the coral reefs of Belize and are adept at blending in with the background by changing color and positioning their bodies to look like soft coral, often drifting in a vertical position - head down. It often maintains this position until an unsuspecting small fish or shrimp swims nearby, whereupon it sucks up the prey with its trumpet like mouth.
