June 12

Like most clownfish, the pink skunk species has a thick layer of mucus on the surface of its body that allows it to swim safely among the stinging tentacles of the sea anemone. Few predators will risk getting stung in exchange for a clownfish meal, so the pink skunks are relatively safe. And that name? It’s called the ‘skunk’ because of the white stripe that runs down the middle of its back.
