Caption

Cornetfish (Fistularia commersonii). Also known as the smooth flute mouth, this fish has an elongated body, a long tubular snout, and a long thin filament extending from its tail. It can grow up to 1.5 metres in length. The cornetfish is found in tropical waters worldwide, in close proximity to coral reefs. It is often found hovering close to the seabed. The cornetfish feeds on small fish and crustaceans. It catches its prey by stalking it, and then ambushing it. Photographed in St John's reef, Red Sea, Egypt.
