Philippines Photo Gallery: Anilao goatfish

We took an underwater photography trip to the Philippines in December 2016.

Goatfish have a pair of chin barbels which contain chemosensory organs used to probe sand or holes in the reef for food. They feed on worms, crustaceans, molluscs, and other small invertebrates. Goatfish can change color.
