Spotted Trunkfish

A spotted trunkfish is one of the many species of fish you could see snorkeling with us. It gets its name from the black spots covering their golden body. These fish release a colorless, dangerous toxin when touched which is only dangerous when eaten. Snorkelers have nothing to fear from this little guy but it’s predators, such as the nurse shark, can instantly die after eating one.
