It is no secret that animals do some interesting things sometimes. This story is no exception… This little kid started racing an angelfish in one of the enclosures. Let’s take a dive into the world of angelfish and discover more about them!


Angelfish are found in the Indian, Atlantic, and Western Pacific oceans in warm, shallow saltwater habitats such as coral reefs where various other fish species and corals surround them.

They are often confused with their freshwater cousins which are only found in the Amazon basin.


Their diet mostly consists of algae (aka seaweed), sponges (they are living animals) and small invertebrates.


Marine angelfish are known for their graceful, elegant swimming style and curious nature.

They are generally peaceful fish but can be territorial, especially regarding their mating and breeding habits.

Angelfish hierarchy is determined by fighting.

They use their mouths to wrestle and their tails as clubs

As the boy slows down and speeds up, so does the fish.

This charming interaction could keep a little one busy for hours!
