The name is derived from their long, slender bodies, which taper to a mouth much like the mouthpiece of a trumpet. These fish, which are typically around 80 centimeters in length, belong to the Aulostomidae family and are known to come in shades ranging from brown and green to blue and gray. Trumpetfish are ambush predators and use their unique bodies to blend in with vertical corals and sponges. They feed primarily on small fish and crustaceans.
