Adult yellowtail snappers are nocturnal predators. They feed on benthic organisms including crabs, shrimp, cephalopods, worms, and fish. Juveniles, living primarily among seagrasses, feed on plankton.

Frogfish can swallow the prey that is 2 times bigger than the fish itself thanks to ability to expand the mouth 12 times of its normal size. Frogfish does not have teeth and it swallows the prey in one piece.

The scorpion fish is a very dominant predator in it's environment, and therefore the scorpion fish has very few natural predators. The human catching the scorpion fish to keep in tanks is the biggest threat to the scorpion fish along with habitat loss from the destruction of coral reefs. Large fish and sea lions are also known to hunt scorpion fish.

Have you ever see how lions and tigers hide behind bushes, waiting to pounce upon an unsuspecting prey? Well, the barracuda exhibits similar behavior when it comes to hunting. This large fish remains still and motionless for hours, till a prey swims by, and when it does, the barracuda attacks with lightning speed.

The humphead wrasse is one of the most spectacular sights in the ocean, but if it is not protected across its range, the species may be forced into extinction.
Humphead wrasse has been subjected to largely unmanaged fisheries that have resulted in consistent marked population declines in fished areas where the species is both protected and unprotected, and with localized extirpations at the edges of its range.

Cowfish are one of the oddest and cutest fish ever. It secrete a type of mucus, or slime, from their skin. This slime provides protection against parasites and infections and helps the Cowfish to move through the water faster. Some fish species also release toxins in their slime which ward off enemy attacks. Other fish species use their slime to feed their young.

Cuttlefish are among the most intelligent invertebrates. They spend their relatively short lives (a few years, max) in tropical and temperate oceans hunting for small prey and trying to avoid being eaten by larger carnivores. Smaller species tend to spend their whole lives on the floor of the ocean, searching for food and mates in a relatively limited range. But the larger species occasionally rise up into open water and swim in search of better territory.
