13/50.- Red Sea, scuba diving, cube boxfish


In this photo you can see a Cube Boxfish (ostracion cubicus). As its name implies, the boxfish is a "box" shaped fish. This fish is often found in the shallower parts of the reefs. They protect themselves from predators with their tough covering, somewhat like a shell. They're able to further protect themselves by secreting poison from their armour.
