WhyReef - Lifestyle

The bullethead parrotfish spends its days swimming over the reef and eating, using its strong, beak-like mouth to scrape algae off of rocks and dead coral. Its mouth is even strong enough to munch on coral! When bullethead parrotfish are young they swim in groups, but as adults they are usually swim alone. All bullethead parrotfish are born female; only some will become male later in life.
