Bird Wrasse in Displaying Gallery!
A bird wrasse was just added to our Displaying gallery!
The bird wrasse (Gomphosus varius) is reef fish native to the Indo-Pacific. This species, also known as the birdfish or green birdmouth wrasse, is easily recognized by its elongated, snout-like mouth, which it only grows as it reaches adulthood.
Bird wrasse fish prefer to make their homes in the lagoon and/or seaward areas within coral reef habitats.
Be sure to check back every Friday to find out what’s happening!
