Characterized by their large green bodies and beak-like teeth, bumphead parrotfish can be found near the coral reefs of the Indo-Pacific. These large corallivores use their mighty teeth to grind up the hard exterior of coral in search of the small creatures living inside.

National Geographic grantee Mikayla Wujec fills us in in this episode of Today I Learned.
