Orange Lined Triggerfish experimentally posing for the camera, which side is best? Juvenile Orange Lined Triggerfish have lines on their snout which they lose as they mature. Triggerfish derive their name from their dorsal spine which can be locked into an 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.
