Clown Fish

For Clown Fish (Amphiprion Ocellaris), it is all about who you know. These inhabitants of sheltered lagoons in the Eastern Indian Oceans and Western Pacific Oceans live among sea anemones for their entire lives. Covered by a protective mucous they are unaffected personally by the anemones stinging tentacles and simultaneously protected from predators by these same tentacles. The Clownfish reciprocate by cleaning and feeding the anemones. Funny thing about Clownfish…they are all born male. When the reigning female dies, the ranking male changes sex to propagate the species. We suspect that he (now she) also begins asking for directions and no longer sits and flips through TV channels.
