A Unique Fish From The Philippines
Tori Black Camsoda nudibranch is one of the rarest species of coral corals. Its scientific name, Camsoda cervicella, is derived from the Japanese word for white blossom. Its name comes from the way that the tentacles appear to curl when they are being fed by a feeding crab. This natural trait makes it look much like a white blossom.
The average lifespan of a nudibranch is three to five years. This means that a person can easily live on one of these beautiful coral reefs for years. However, it is important to understand that there are certain areas of the planet that feature only rare species of corals.
Tori Black is an unusual looking marine fish that will grow to be around 10 inches in length. Its body is usually black with white dots, which makes it seem like it has two contrasting colors. It is typically found in the western Indo-Pacific area but can also be located as far south as Central America. It has a reputation for being shy but once it is approached, it will dart away quickly to hide. However, it does occur to be aggressive to other fish.
This fish has a unique coloration that has led scientists to believe that it belongs to a new family. This family includes squids and cephalopods, so it is not a surprise that this fish belongs to the same group. It shares its habitat with approximately 100 other reef fish species that have similar physical features.
There are only six known species of corals on earth. This makes Tori Black one of the rarest of these creatures. This fish tends to prefer shallow waters where it lives by burrowing through the sand and avoiding rocky areas. It feeds on corals by piercing their skin with its mouth until it is able to take the coral from its mantle. As it consumes the coral, the cavity becomes filled with sand until the opening of the fish’s mouth is covered completely with sand.
It takes about five years for a Tori Black Camsoda specimen to reach maturity. When it does reach this point in its life, there is no indication of the fish leaving its protected confines. It can live up to three decades in captivity. This is quite the longest lived coral fish in the world according to records. This fish can survive for decades outside of the wild with little interaction with humans.
