Humphead Wrasse resting on a rocky seabed displaying its exquisite markings, reminiscent of Egyptian hieroglyphics. Each Humphead wrasse can be identified by its distinct natural markings. They are often sedentary and occupy the same stretch of reef for extended lengths of time, even becoming a 'resident' Humphead Wrasse. They are generally solitary individuals, roving the reef by day and resting under coral ledges, on rocky seabeds or in caves at night. Overall, wrasse are a large and diverse family of fish, the majority of which are brightly coloured with intricately detailed markings. Although wrasse are typically small fish, there are a few exceptionally large members such as the Napoleon (or Humphead) Wrasse.
