The clown triggerfish chomps on things found on the bottom of the reef, such as crabs, sea urchins, sea stars, sponges, snails, clams, and other invertebrates. It has many different types of teeth that help it crunch hard shells. It can also blow water from its mouth to expose prey that hide under sand! It only eats other animals, so it is a carnivore.
