Five new inhabitants of Australia’s underwater wonder world are featured on Australian Sea Life II – The Reef series.

The colourful Surgeonfish is found along the coast of Western Australia and throughout the waters of the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland to northern New South Wales. The most distinguishing characteristics of this marine species are its amazing ability to change colour and its extremely sharp scutes and fins – hence the name – Surgeonfish.
