Hawaiian Squirrelfish

Just some random Christmassy garb!

The Hawaiian Squirrelfish is a fish with massive eyes for seeking out crustaceans and worms at night. They spend their days hidden in crevices amongst the rocks.

They reach about 17 cm (6.7 in) in length and are armed with spikes near their gills that can inflict painful stings. Some of their relatives are also venomous, but it seems this jolly fellow just stabs you a little without adding poison to your troubles. A sure sign of charitable, good cheer!

It's the office Christmas party!

Aside from that they're red with go-faster white stripes.

They can keep 'em! I got too much relaxing to do and I want it to be nice and slow. These legs won't stretch themselves, you know!
