These guys are sneaky one's, they can cruise in and out never be seen. They are curious and will swim within a few feet of you, see who you are, and swim into the blue. They are considered non-aggressive and are fun to watch. They will steal a fish on the end of a spear though. They appear so quickly it is tough to get a good picture of.
