Hogfish at Fourth Cut reef

This feeding hogfish was also shot at Fourth Cut reef. These large members of the wrasse family appear around the reef in a great variety of color combinations.

They were given a little tool called chromatophores that allow them to change colors, often depending on their behavior, such as feeding or looking for a mate, for example.
