|This tiny Clingfish,
about 3/4 inch long, is unique among fishes. Clingfish
have a jointed neck that enables them to turn, lift, or
lower their head. They always position themselves in a
manner that mimics the look of the arms of the crinoid,
maximizing their own security among the arms of the host.
Identification of Clingfish: Discotrema crinophila
