.... give us a kiss!

I didn't realise fish had teeth! Learning so much at the end of a macro lens! Okay, i was so busy taking this photo i forgot to look at it's name.

It does have a dull sheen on it - it was through a quite blurred fish tank (quite frankly the tank got in the way! LOL) - but i thought it was quite a funny looking fish so i wanted to share it with you!

This is a very common fish on tropical reefs. The shape of the mouth and the head leads me to believe that this a type of Puffer Fish (or possible a Scorpion Fish). Without seeing more of it, I can't really be more spefic. The 'teeth' are really just calcium plates that they use to scrape off coral polyps. Despite being so common, I never tire of seeing them when we're out diving. Nicely captured shot, by the way!

Nearly...I think it's a parrot fish. Watch Blue Planet for more info! Parrot fish are responsible for the creation of the white sands of tropical beaches believe it or not!

Looks like one of the trigger or pig fish family to me.
Whatever it is, super shot under the circumstances. Very well done!

Ok, so i just had to go back to Bristol Zoo - a mere 2 hour return trip! Well - it gave me a reason to go out and play with the camera again today!

And i checked back on the fish to see what variety it was, and it's a 'Black spotted puffer fish'. Not sure where the black comes in cos it's blue - but that was definitely what it said.

Thanks for all the comments on this one - appreciated.
