Honeycomb Cowfish Gallery GALLERY

Acanthostracion polygonia

The Honeycomb Cowfish has distinct polygon shapes on their bodies. The cowfishes have forward pointing horns above their eyes, and spines in front of the anal fins. They can change their colors rapidly, have a large "fan" tail, and dark upper lip. They forage around reefs in water as shallow as 5 feet but most often will be deeper than 10 feet. Don't confused them with the Scrawled Cowfish.
Including their tails, they can grow to be about 1.5 feet long.
