(Naso brevirostris)

I've seen a lot of these in aquariums when I was little. It is funny looking with that nose. :giggle:

I have to take a picture of a shark that seemed to have a saw for a nose. I saw of while on a trip to the Bahamas years ago. We wondered why it needed a nose like that.

good question o-o
 maybe it helps attract mates...?

Not sure... Usually with sharks those alterations are supposed to help them survive....
