Triggerfish; Balistidae

These fish have small mouths but strong jaws! When scuba diving at Sail Rock or Koh Tao we have learnt not mess with the titan triggerfish in the nesting season, as they become seriously territorial.

Named because of its relatively large size and the erectile spine on its back. They have powerful jaws and should be avoided when nesting!

A big but peaceful Trigger, with more of a yellow/pinky colouration.
