Filefish, wrasses, and damselfish, gather over the carcass of a huge prawn that was recently discarded by fishermen. The carcass, which has fallen into a tight crevice, does not make for easy pickings and the fish at this point, seem hesitant to enter the dark crevice despite the prospect of an easy meal. They do continue to hover over the carcass however, and stare down at the potential meal.
*The Latin name of the fish should be “Monacanthus chinensis“. It is misspelled in the video. Thanks to Jeffrey Low for the headsup!
