There are 40 species of trigger sh in the planetÂ’s oceans, most of which are found in shallow, lagoon-protected waters in the Indo-Paci c. Notoriously ill-tempered, trigger sh often do not hesitate to charge and bite at other creatures, especially clumsy scuba divers who wander too close to trigger sh nests. Bottom dwellers, trigger sh dig out crabs, worms and other invertebrates by clearing away debris and sand with their apping ns and water they blast out of their mouths.
