Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean. The capital city is Hamilton. Bermuda is self-governing, with its own constitution and its own government, which enacts local laws, while the United Kingdom retains responsibility for defence and foreign relations. Bermuda was originally discovered in 1503 by Spanish explorer Juan de Bermúdez, after whom the islands are named.

Bermuda blue angelfish left.

A Bermuda blue angelfish, Holacanthus bermudensis, usually called just Blue Angelfish, is a species of marine angelfish of the family Pomacanthidae. It is blue-brown in color with green hues and bright yellow on the tip of its tail and fins. Their young, however, have a completely different coloration. A young blue angelfish is dark blue with a yellow tail and some yellow on its fins. It also has vertical blue bars on its body. As it ages, the bars fade away and the body color becomes lighter and some browns and greens are added. The Bermuda blue angelfish can live up to 20 years.
