Orange-lined Triggerfish

Known to bite the hand that feeds them, the orange-lined triggerfish has a small mouth but strong teeth that deliver a painful bite. They are thought to be the most aggressive of the triggerfish. Like others in the family, they erect their first dorsal spine and lock it in place with a second spine. This allows them to lock themselves into crevices, making it challenging for a predator to pull them out, as only the fish can release the hold. 

Also referred to as the undulate triggerfish due to their wavy orange lines that start behind the head and cover the rest of the body, they have dark green bodies under their orange stripes, with a black blotch on the caudal peduncle and an orange caudal fin. The orange-lined triggerfish inhabits coral-rich areas of seaward reefs and lagoons throughout the tropical and subtropical waters of the Indian Ocean and western Pacific. They grow up to 30 cm in length but are known as murderous monsters when removed from their natural environment.
