I can assure it is real, Ed.

Its is a type of parrotfish, very common in Canary Islands, where it is called 'vieja'.

Great funny wildlife images :D

Oh, fascinating, Jaime. I don't get under water much, except in the shower. 

 

I meant that the smile was Photoshopped. No?

Nope, all you can see is real. They use their teeth to feed in hard coralline algae.

Their tropical parrotfish cousins, who eat hard corals, are know for 'creating' the white sand of the beaches with their depositions.

This is one of mine images of a vieja:

Not so funny, but you can see her smile (she is female).

In fact, this image was sold a couple of months ago :)

Very enjoyable. That smiling fish could/should run for president. 😁

This one gives me a smile. Why didn't I think of taking a picture like that - with my cooking it would have been a cinch...
