WhyReef - Fun Facts
As you might guess from its name, the green humphead parrotfish has a big head, and for good reason! It rams its head into coral to break it up into smaller pieces, and then eats it. It also has a very strong beak-like mouth that it uses to grind the coral into a paste. The humphead parrotfish can eat 10,000 pounds of coral every year! This might seem like a bad thing for the coral, but it can help new coral to grow.
