Animal Update: Raccoon Butterflyfish
Published February 13, 2015
Three raccoon butterflyfish have been added to our Surviving Through Adaptation exhibit!
The raccoon butterflyfish gets its name from the black "raccoon-like" mask that covers its eyes!
This reef species can be found in both the Indo-Pacific and Southeast Atlantic. Its diet usually consists of a combination of benthic invertebrates (like tube worms) and algae.
Check back every Friday for more behind-the-scenes updates!
