Caption: Bumphead parrotfish (Bolbometopon muricatum). This species, found in the Indo-Pacific region, is the largest of all parrotfish, reaching lengths of 1.3 metres. It undergoes a change of colour as it develops, with the primary phase as a dull grey with white spots, which gradually becomes dark green. Juveniles are found in lagoons and adults in clear water reefs. Its main source of food is benthic algae and live corals. It sleeps in caves and shipwrecks at night. Photographed in Bali, Indonesia.
