The raccoon butterflyfish, also known as the racoon coralfish or crescent-masked butterflyfish, is a species of butterflyfish. It lives mostly in the Indo-Pacific and Southeast Atlantic. It is often found on shipwrecks.
The racoon butterflyfish is chiefly a nocturnal feeder and is usually found in pairs or small groups. It feeds on coral polyps, tentacles of featherdusters and Christmas-tree worms.
The raccoon butterflyfish is generally peaceful and may reside in a large fish-only saltwater aquarium with other butterflyfishes.
The Red Sea offers many diving sites. El Gouna is a tourist resort located on the Red Sea coast, 22 km north of Hurghada International Airport. El Gouna is mainly famous for its watersport facilities such as scuba diving, windsurfing, and waterskiing. It has also two golf courses.

Sea turtles are graceful saltwater reptiles, well adapted to life in their marine world. With streamlined bodies and flipper-like limbs, they are graceful swimmers able to navigate across the oceans. Most species of sea turtle are endangered.
