Blue tang

Print

The blue tang, Paracanthurus hepatus, doesn’t “just keep swimming.” It can actually play dead! It has a tendency to lay down on its side when stressed or scared, or even when it’s sleeping or resting. This is a very strange behavior not seen in many fish.

Anyway, if sea hares had a manta, it’d be “just keep eating.”
