The striking clownfish became popular with the movie Finding Nemo. This curious tropical fish has one of nature’s most remarkable symbiotic relationship with the poisonous sea anenome where it lives its life. Immune to the poison tentacles, it attracts other fish into the anenome’s deadly lair, the clownfish able to feed off the remains of the prey. The clownfish additional cleans the anenome’s tentacles.

The clownfish can alter its sex. Always born male, on the death of the dominant female, the primary male turns female.

How does such an elegant an attractive fish harbour such an intriguing lifestyle?

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
