yellow boxfish

Ostracion cubicus
  

Some boxfish produce a spawning sound (a high pitched hum) which can be heard by the human ear and occurs at the moment the male releases his sperm, it lasts for about 6 seconds getting louder until it reaches halfway and then subsides. Each male is thought to make a unique sound.
