The Reef Triggerfish is also known as:: The Rectangular Triggerfish, Wedge-tail Triggerfish and the V-line Humu Humu.  It is often confused with the Picasso Trigger.  The Rectangular or Reef Triggerfish is the official fish representing the State of Hawaii.  The name Humu Humu (triggerfish) comes from Hawaiian and Humuhumu-nukunuku-apua'a refers to the pig-like snout that it and the Picasso Trigger have and use to "root" around the reef.  The Reef Trigger frequents the outer edges of coral reefs of the central and western Pacific, including the Red Sea. It has a tan body with dark bands. Its distinctive features include blue/black strips across its eyes, blue lips and a black wedge at the base of the caudal fin, which is outlined in brown and yellow.  The Reef Trigger is highly maneuverable and changes directions quickly.
