TilapiaAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
A tilapia in its nest in a small pond near the native cypress swamp area of Gatorland. Tilapia are nest builders. Eggs are fertilized in the nest but the parents provide even greater protection by immediately picking up the eggs in their mouth and maintaining them through incubation and for several days after hatching.
