Rockmover Wrasse

I went snorkeling near the Tongg’s area this weekend and tried out our new Flip UltraHD video camera. We spotted a juvenile Rockmover Wrasse! These wrasses are uncommon in shallow rubble and reef areas. This guy was only in 4 feet of water. They flip over rocks with their heads in search of invertebrates. The adults can get up to 12 inches in length and they change their coloration to a more black and white pattern. Notice how the juvenile in this video resembles seaweed and even drifts with the current!
