Humuhumunukunukuapuaa The official state fish of Hawaii, this tropical reef fish, which means “triggerfish with a snout like a pig” in Hawaiian, is identifiable because of its blue teeth and lips. When racing away from predators it makes grunting sounds and has the ability to blow out jets of water from its mouth when sifting for food. It’s a fairly solitary fish and described as somewhat aggressive and doesn’t like to stay in the same vicinity as members of the same species.
A pineapple stand, a food truck, a hidden lookout, waves smashing on the beach during a squall, an animal, a cool building. We were in and out of the car all day during our trip up the Eastern shores, and it couldn’t have been a better day. I would highly recommend it.
