I am a predator species that lives on coral reefs.
I am a coral trout.
I am a hungry predator – I like to eat a wide variety of reef fish. I feed during the day but most often at dusk and dawn.
I have two different ways of feeding – ambush and prowling. I ambush fish that live among the coral on the reef bottom. I do this by hiding and staying very still and alert, ready to attack passing prey.
I use the prowling method to hunt schools of fish higher up in the water. I swim (prowl) slowly towards my prey and then attack at great speed.
