Currently in Egypt, along the Red Sea doing some snorkeling while daughter is on a liveaboard diving. Some pictures from the reef at my resort

How come the Surge Wrasse and Bird Wrasse have such different snouts? Either I'm looking at the wrong fish or I'm in a landlocked state and only know pigs & cows.

I guess what I'm really after is: "what makes a Wrasse....well.... a Wrasse"?

The wrasse family is one of the largest classification. From large to tiny, different snouts, wildly different colors.

When I can't figure out a fish, I just label it wrasse. Lol.
