Individually crafted - we take pride in our unique collection of underwater photography. Our high quality photo prints featuring pictures of tropical fish are printed individually to order.
Boomerang Triggerfish, its colours perfectly blending with the textures and colour of a short tentacle plate coral as it timidly attempts blend into the reef. Triggerfish derive their name from their dorsal spine which can be locked into a raised position by an additional, smaller dorsal spine. The raised spine is released by depressing the smaller (trigger) spine. The more aggressive Triggerfish use their raised spine as a warning for fish or other creatures invading their territory. Also, very cleverly, they use their spine to lock themselves into coral crevasses.
