Each day parrotfish chomp on coral. They chomp and chomp and chomp and when they excrete their meal it comes out as white fluffy sand. So if you enjoy building sandcastles on the beach with your kiddos, or just by yourself, you have parrotfish to thank. Each year one parrotfish can poo 1000 pounds of sand. That’s a lot of concrete!
And if you thought sharks had some of the strongest teeth in the world, this fun fact actually goes to the parrotfish. Researchers have found their extremely strong jaws are full of interwoven teeth that kind of look like chain mail under a microscope. Built to last a lifetime of chewing on something akin in strength to a rock.
I bet you will never look at sandy beaches the same again.
