I wonder what evolutionary quirk led to such vivid coloration on the juvies (as well as those of other species such as garibaldi, sheephead and treefish etc.)?
I would have thought camouflage would have been a better survival strategy for such easy prey. They're not anywhere near sexual maturity, so they're not trying to attracted a mate.
Any evolutionary ichthyologists out there?
