Butterfly fish (Chaetodon sp.)
Available in: 
Museum of the World Ocean, MEERESMUSEUM Stralsund

Butterfly fish are able to peck with their protruding snouts while searching for small invertebrates or coral polyps hidden in deep cracks. Graceful and colourful, butterfly fish have a vertical dark band on their head running through their true eye, making it hard to see. Some species have round, eye-like dots on their flanks. It is believed that this optical illusion is meant to confuse predators.
