Humphead Maori Wrasse at home amongst the reef.
Beauty And The Reef

Color Blue Art Contest Contest Entry
Cheilinus Undulatus or Humphead Wrasse are usually spotted in shallow waters amongst coral reefs around the Pacific. A friend of mine visited the great barrier reef early this year and described to me how and why she feel in love with one of these fellas. They're very curious creatures and apparently greet divers/tourists regularly, they can grow up to 2 meters in length making them one of the largest fish to roam the reefs. I love the markings on their faces and chests and read somewhere that they resemble the tattoos of the Maori tribes, I wonder if the Polynesians originally got the idea from these fish thousands of years ago. A fine example of nature's beauty...and one that needs protecting. They are listed as endangered!
