8/50.- Red Sea, snorkeling, yellowtail surgeonfish


This is a Yellowtail Surgeonfish (zebrasoma xanthurum). Surgeonfishes get their name from the razor sharp spines which can cause deep incisions. Their diet consists of algae and other small animals found on rocks and corals. Yellowtail Surgeonfish are small (10-20 cm), but the combination of yellow and blue on their skin makes of this fish one of the most beautiful in the reefs.
