Academy biologist Allan provides a behind the scenes look into feeding South American leaf fish (Monocirrhus polyacanthus). This fish lives in the dark waters of the Amazon Basin, where it preys on smaller fishes. It hides from predators by looking like a dead leaf, right down to the "stem" of its lower lip. The South American leaf fish tank can be found in the Staff Picks section of Steinhart Aquarium at the Academy.
