• Not a huge fan of sunlight, the Foxface will spend most of it’s time in covered areas in coral reefs searching for food.

• They have a long fox-like snout that is made of black, brown and white bands that stretch from their snout to the front of their bodies. 

• They are solitary fish and do not have schools of fellow foxface to use as protection.

• Foxface rabbitfish can poison predators using venom found in their fins.

All living things depend on clean water, especially fish! So reduce, reuse, and recycle to keep the waterways clean. Pick up trash at your local lake, stream, river, or wetland; it can make a real difference. Because all water leads to the ocean, keeping your local wildlife areas clean helps wildlife near you, and far away too. You can learn more by going to these links:
