WhyReef - Fun Facts
The red cornetfish is one of those rare fish without scales. It has a very long, thin body, and can grow over 1m (3.3 feet) in length. Though it may look skinny and harmless, it is a predator that uses its tube-like mouth to suck up prey much bigger than itself, much like a vacuum!
