Aggressive and fearless, they will charge at -- and bite -- any intruder, including divers. Most, however, just sit there watching you watching them. For fun, try placing a mirror in front of one...
Sarcastics can reach 1 foot in length, although most are about 3" - 8" long. They range from Central California to Central Baja California.
