description The striped parrot, also known as the Princess parrot (Scarus taeniopterus) is often found on the reefs of the Caribbean. He is a small, greenish-blue parrot with a yellow ribbon on the flanks. Characteristic are two blue streaks above and below the eye. Back and tail fins are understood with striking color strips: yellow, orange or pink. Striped parrots live in small groups in rocky coastal areas and at external reefs up to 25 m depth. They graze the coral reefs with their beak-like teeth. They are - like all parrot - a popular photo shoot for divers.
