Did you know that all clownfish are hermaphrodites? A clownfish school operates under the hierarchy of a lone female. When she dies (or is displaced), the next male in the hierarchy changes gender to take her place.

Original watercolour illustration on 265 gsm (125 lb) Hahnemühle bamboo paper.
Inspired by #DrawTheOceans, a drawing prompt by Greenpeace.
