2 Siganus rivulatus, con librea normal y de camuflaje, Creta, Grecia, 2011

Siganus rivulatus. Rabbitfish or spinefoots, an invasive species that came up the Suez Canal, first appearing during the World War II German occupation— hence it’s name. It’s also known as the αγριόσαλπα (agriósalpa). They are most common around Rhodes, where you may see them in the fish tavernas.
