The business end of a titan triggerfish (Balistoides viridescens). These fish, which can grow to be nearly a meter long, have been known to attack divers when they are nesting. They have a cone-shaped territory that extends upward from their nests; wander into it, and you may have to deal with an angry fish! Crystal Rock, Komodo National Park, Indonesia.
