A yellow spotted box fish. Square shape, tiny lips, likes to hover by coral. The box fish can be your friend. I have seen many while diving in shallow water on O'ahu, Big Island, and Kaua'i.

The Whale Shark. The largest mouth ever, the suction must be incredible. This big guy is killed "incidentally" when tuna are fished. Please don't let this gorgeous creature die a horrible death so that you can have your "chicken of the sea" topped with artery-clogging mayo and a nasty after-smell/taste.
