06 May What Animal Am I?
It’s What Animal Am I Wednesday!
Let’s hear from this week’s guest.
“Why hello there! Thanks for having me today for ‘What Animal am I Wednesday’! Can you guess who I am?
I live in coral and rocky reefs in tropical and temperate marine waters throughout the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean, and the south eastern Atlantic Ocean.
You can find me in water that is 1 to 40 metres deep.
I change colour as I grow. When I am young, I am bright yellow with black spots. As I get older, my colour fades and my spots become smaller and brownish, sometimes even changing to white spots with a black margin.
My bright colours and spots warn predators to steer clear. If I get stressed, I can release poisonous secretions from my skin.
My body has a very distinctive shape-I look like a swimming box!
Can you guess who I am?”
