Redtoothed Triggerfish – Odonus niger

I’m not as scary as I look.

Like its name suggests, an adult redtoothed triggerfish has  prominent bright red teeth. Despite this seemingly scary appearance, it is  not as aggressive as other triggerfish. They are tolerant of other fishes  and live peaceably together with most species.

Did you know?

Redtoothed triggerfish are natural decorators and rearrange material in their habitats like rocks and pieces of coral, to suit their liking. It’s all about feeling comfy at home!
