Photos about remoras (Echeneidae): Exploring a shallow seagrass bed off Nassau Bahamas, I felt something hit me on the side of my leg. I look down and see this juvenile remora (Remora remora) trying to attach itself to my thigh. Apparently, the confused little suckerfish thought I could provide meals and ventilation. It refused to accept that I would make a poor host and followed me around until I left the water.Two remoras attached to the carapace of a green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) in Palau. Some cultures used remoras to catch turtles. A line is fastened to the remora's tail, and when a turtle is sighted, the fish is released from the boat. It usually heads directly for the turtle and fastens itself to the turtle's shell. When the remora is hauled in so is the turtle.
