WhyReef - Lifestyle
Red lionfish live alone. During the day you will find them resting under a coral ledge or in a cave. At sunset, they will leave their home and swim over the reef, hunting for food by sneaking up behind their prey and using their feather-like rays to hide their movement. Then with one big gulp, they swallow their prey whole!
