COMMENTS: Crafted of 14k yellow gold, this hogfish pendant displays a hogfish in excellent detail with small yet sparkling diamonds! The fish has a unique textured design throughout the body, an etched line throughout the tail, and a high shine polished face. Two of the fins are pave set with diamonds and ruby is set in the eye. The hogfish (Lachnolaimus maximus) is a species of wrasse native to the Western Atlantic Ocean, living in a range from Nova Scotia, Canada, to northern South America, including the Gulf of Mexico. This species occurs around reefs, especially preferring areas with plentiful gorgonians. The hogfish is characterized by a large, laterally compressed body shape. It possesses a very elongated snout, which it uses to search for crustaceans buried in the sediment. This very long “pig-like” snout and its rooting behavior give the hogfish its name. The caudal or tail fin is somewhat lunate and the pectoral fins are along the lateral sides of the body with the paired pelvic fins directly below. A prominent black spot behind the pectoral fins differentiates males from females. The dorsal fin usually is composed of three or four long dorsal spines followed by a series of shorter dorsal spines. It is a carnivore. It feeds on mollusks, as well as crabs and sea urchins.
