According to all-knowing virtual guru that is Wikipedia, “Leptocephalus (meaning “slim head”) is the flat and transparent larva of the eel, marine eels, and other members of the Superorder Elopomorpha.” We think they might also be secret underwater superheroes."

The reef, rectangular, or wedge-tail triggerfish, also known by its Hawaiian name, humuhumunukunukuāpuaʻa (or just humuhumu for short; meaning "blunt nosed fish that is sewn together like a patchwork quilt and grunts like a pig" for the sound it makes when cornered or caught). Family Balistidae.
Triggerfish are members of the Balistidae family, which includes 40 species in 11 genera that inhabit coral reefs in the Atlantic, the Indian, and the Pacific Oceans.
