St. John Snorkels: Seagrass Creatures

Snorkeling the St. John Seagrass

Although most snorkelers head immediately out to the reef, there’s really a lot of cool stuff to be seen right off the beach in a sand and seagrass environment.

St. John Marine Life: Smooth Trunkfish

Smooth Trunkfish Lactophrys triqueter
Smooth Trunkfish (Lactophrys triqueter)

The trunkfish is also known locally as  boxfish, shellfish and cowfish. They have a hard outer shell formed by thick scales fused together. Their hard shell and the fact that their skin secretes a poison makes them unappetizing to most predators. Trunkfish forage the sandy periphery of reefs and find foot by shooting a jet of water from their mouths to expose small mollusks, and other invertebrates in the sand.
