From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Usually seen in clear-water areas at depths below 15 m, and prefers islands and offshore reefs rather than continental shores. Feeds mainly on fishes, and on crabs, shrimps and stomatopods. It may not be sold in Mauritius because of cases of ciguatera poisoning. [details]
