I believe it´s time to present, often seen inhabitant of Mantas and more. Thick, fleshy lip fish with a hump over the head also known as Napoleon wrasse. It´s very impressive fish that can grow to up to 229 cm (male) and can weight to 190 kg. Out friends here are around 90 cm large. The hump becomes more prominent with age. Napoleon wrasses have distinct coloration with males ranging from a bright electric blue to green, dull blue-green or a purplish blue. Females are red-orange above to a pale or white below. And guess what – they can change sex from female to male.
