Red-toothed Triggerfish with its array of fluorescent blues, mauves & blue-greens shining out from a coral backdrop. The most distinct feature of Red-toothed Triggerfish are their prominent scarlet red teeth. Red-toothed Triggerfish can often be found feeding in large schools in the channels between the reefs. Red-toothed Triggerfish can often be found swarming in large schools along the reef drop-off. 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.
