Its color is typically greyish red, but it can change
color from bright red to coppery red. It has a dark
stripe running through its eye if you look at it from the
top when it is underwater. Its size ranges from 2–6
pounds (1–3 kg) but many biologists have now
confirmed that a 29.5 pound (13.4 kg) mangrove
snapper was speared off of the coast of Louisiana.
