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!
