Discover why the triggerfish on Wakatobi reefs are worth a look.

Though often overlooked by divers, triggerfish are worth a closer look. You often find them over areas of sand or coral rubble, where they will expose or dig out prey such as crabs and worms by whisking away debris with their fins or blasting jets of water from their mouth to move sand and debris. On occasion, they will even use their teeth to grab and move chunks of coral to reveal any tasty morsel that is hiding below. Behaviors such as this have led marine biologists to believe that triggers are more intelligent than the average fish.
