'Parrotfish' changes itself from Female to Male. Almost all Parrotfish species are sequential hermaphrodites, starting as females (known as the initial phase) and then changing to males (the terminal phase). Parrotfishes are a group of approximately ninety species of fishes traditionally regarded as a family (Scaridae), but now often considered a subfamily (Scarinae) of the wrasses.
