Fun fact 2/17/16

Clown fish, like Nemo, are protandrous. They are born male, and develop into female if necessary. In a school of clown fish, there are two sexually mature fish, the breeding fish. The other fish in the school are male. If the single, dominant female is removed, another male fish in the pod will develop into a female. They are born hermaphrodites!
