A large Nassau grouper inspects my dome port with school of jacks in the background. At the Hol Chan Marine Reserve in Belize.
The Nassau grouper, like most groupers, is an ambush predator that eats fairly large fishes and invertebrates, including large crabs and lobsters.
While they were historically very common, Nassau groupers are now considered to be endangered by scientists.
