The Biggest Animals Kingdom and in The World | Parrotfish | Parrotfish teeth known as wrasses other. Maximum dimensions vary within the family, most species reaching 30-50 cm (12-20 inches) in length. However, some species reach a length of more than 1 m (3 feet 3 inches), and green parrot fish can reach 1.3 m (4 ft 3 in). The pharyngeal teeth crush coral and coralline algae fish taken in the diet. A parrot can produce 90 kg (200 pounds) of sand per year. Almost all species are hermaphrodites sequential, starting as females (known as the first phase) and then changing men (terminal). However, in many species, eg parrot red light (Sparisoma viride), some individuals develop directly to males (ie, do not begin until women).
Some species, such as the Mediterranean parrotfish (S. Crete), gonochorist are secondary, meaning that some women change sex, and they vary from woman to man, while immature (ie, functioning reproductive women will not change men). Duck parrot (Leptoscarus vaigiensis) is the only species of parrots known not to change sex. The remarkably different terminal and initial phases were first described as a separate species in different cases, but there are species whose phases are similar.
In most species of parrots, young people have a different color pattern of adults. Juveniles of some tropical species can alter their color temporarily to mimic other species. Parrotfish feeding of most tropical species form large schools grouped by size. The eggs float freely, settling into the coral until hatching. Protect parrots is proposed as a means to coral reefs in the Caribbean should be treated algae store.
