Juvenile Dragon Wrasse 1
Fig. 44: This is a juvenile rockmover or dragon wrasse (lat. novaculichthys taeniourus). It was hiding in a bunch of sea grass in low water and imitating the movement of the swell. It was pretty difficult to take a picture of it, because it was always hiding quickly when it saw me.
