An adult parrotfish has over one thousand teeth, lined up in 15 continuously growing rows. The teeth are fused to form a robust parrot-like beak, which is how the fish got its name. When scientists analyzed the structure of these chompers, they discovered that they were harder than copper, silver, and gold. They can also withstand over 530 tons of pressure. That's the same as the weight of about 88 elephants!
When you think of the most beautiful beaches in the world, parrotfish are not the first thing that springs to mind, but in fact, parrotfish are 70% responsible. From the beautiful white sand in the Maldives to swaths of pink sand in Jamaica, the lowly parrotfish is capable of producing great art for us all to enjoy.
Certain species of parrotfish spend about an hour creating a bubble of mucus pajamas to sleep in. The mucus comes from glands behind their gills. These bubbles act as protective sleeping bags to shield the fish from blood-sucking parasites and predators like moray eels and sharks.
