Clown Triggerfish are named for their circus like coloration. Relatively large for reef fish, they can be found swimming near crevices in the reef. Triggerfish use these crevices to hide from predators.
Triggerfish rely on an unusual defense mechanism. Their two part dorsal fin can be held erect and locked in place. It is used as a defense against being swallowed or as a means of locking the triggerfish securely inside a crevice.
Most triggerfish blow shallow depressions in the sand in which they lay their eggs
