Gold Spotted Rabbitfish

Siganus punctatus


  • Western Pacific Ocean off of Hawaii & Tahiti.


  • Ocean coastal reef


  • Algae

The spots along its body and eye serve as camouflage, but the dorsal fins are able to inject a powerful venom if hiding in the reef does not work.

Living in warm coastal reefs, the young tend to swim in groups of 50 or more until they are large enough to fend for themselves. Adults will inhabit the deepwater reefs and live in pairs. This species is easily recognized by its coloration.
