Photobombing fish becomes big hit in Australia

A blue parrotfish has shot to stardom after photobombing tourists' pictures in Australia. The fish, named Gavin, has become the main attraction at Green Island, a diving centre just off Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

Gavin has joined the current trend of photobombing tourists’ Australian holiday pictures, appearing in the snaps of divers that have travelled from all around the world. The colourful parrotfish seems to be selective with his choice of victim, mainly photobombing photos with female divers in them.Parrotfish

“Gavin's been around for a couple of years now and he looks forward to coming over and grinning his lovely little head off at all our guests,” said Karl Kuhle, from the Great Barrier Reef attraction. “Gavin does seem to actually swim up for his photo and with a free feed on offer and gorgeous females for company, who wouldn't be smiling.”

Photos have emerged of the bright yellow and blue fish bearing his teeth next to unsuspecting tourists. Unlike most parrotfish, which usually swim alone, Gavin has been getting up close and personal with divers of all ages, giving them something to remember years after their visit has ended.Other fish join in Photobombing

“Our staff do the feeding, not the guests, but they get to enjoy watching him come up close and grin into their faces as he swipes a little feed, “ added Kuhle. “We feed less than 1kg of approved fish food per day to the hundreds of fish that, like Gavin, enjoy meeting Seawalker guests.”
