Meet kikakapu, the lined butterfly-fish

  • Terry Lilley / Special to The Garden Island

    Kikakapu is the Hawaiian name for the lined butterfly-fish.

Many butterfly-fish live in schools and hang out together, but this rare Hawaiian butterfly-fish is a master at social distancing. You almost always see them in pairs, and they have a large territory of coral reef and actively chase others of their own species out of their territory.
