Captivatingly colorful and loaded with personality, the Axilspot Hogfish is also referred to as the Panda Hogfish, or Polkadot wrasse. Juveniles are brown to black in coloration with nine white spots. As the Axilspot Hogfish matures, three stunning false eyes will adorn the contrasting coloration ranging from its fuchsia head to a sunshine yellow tail. An abrupt angle down the midpoint of the body marked in white makes this hogfish appear half-dipped in shadow, half in light.
