Parrot Fish versus Sea Urchin

I was doing a shallow dive, and noticed this Parrot Fish going after something. I am pretty sure its an urchin. There were no other players on the field, so I guess the spines were somewhat protective….


The urchin is in the lower left.

Fish goes in for a nibble.

Some soccer action and the Fish is moving the Urchin around.

Fish, recognizing the photographer, smiles.

  1. Love these! I’m just cruising around thru your recent photos scattering random comments… We watched a Spanish Hogfish play with an urchin for a couple minutes on our last trip – never did find out if he ate it or what.
