In celebration of its 10th anniversary, the Gardaland Seal Life Aquarium presents the great Napoleon Wrasse. It has a strange bump on its forehead, which is reminiscent of the Napoleon's hat and gave him its name. It is the biggest member of the Labridae family and can reach a maximum length of 2,30 m. It comes very close to people although it is a solitary loner. The fish delights with its variegated colours ranging from blue to emerald green and from pea green to pinkish grey. Its fins and body, with the exception of the head, are covered by thin yellowish lines.
