The bonefish inhabits tropical and warm temperate waters worldwide and travel in schools until adulthood, then go at life solo. They can get to be 14 pounds or 6 kilograms in weight and 2.5 feet or 77 centimeters in length. The top half of the bonefish is a bluish-green color, with bright silver scales along its sides and underbelly. Distinctive characteristics include a sucker type mouth, a cone-shaped head, and a deeply forked tail. They also have no spine, helping them as a bottom dweller, while they feed on crabs, shrimp, and worms. Whole schools may be easily spooked, but Bonefish are built for speed out of necessity, as it is their only defense against predators. At short bursts of speed, Bonefish can reach 40 miles or 64 kilometers per hour.
