Rabbitfish have large eyes, and can vary in colour, dark browns and yellows with lightly spaced spots across the body. Rabbitfish are unusual in that they can change their colour depending it on their mood, or the colour of their surroundings. Despite looking innocent, rabbitfish also have venomous fins along their spine.
