Titan Trigger Fish

These shots were taken during a trip to Menjangen Island off the NW coast of Bali last October. Titan Trigger fish are amazing - over half a metre in length with massive teeth. They eat coral and while diving you can actually hear them biting and crunching. What goes in at the front end comes out as white sand at the other. They have also been known to bite divers!!

  1. Colourful creatures, their markings made me think of patchwork quilts.. how bizarre it must be to hear them eating way down there!
