Bumphead Parrotfish

On a recent visit to Borneo I was lucky enough to see a school of Bumphead Parrotfish slowly parading along the edge of the reef. The school was in a column which was about five fish deep and five fish wide and they took several minutes to pass. When the tail end got alongside us, the rear fish started to turn around and go back and before long the whole school had turned around and slowly passed us again.


  1. Love the shoal pics as you know so keep them coming!

  2. What an amazing sight to see, made even more so I guess because it's so silent down there and the gliding past would be more surreal! Strange name for a fish!!
