Pufferfish Facts | 10 Animal Facts about Pufferfish
Did you know pufferfish can't use their stomach for digestion because it's main purpose is to expand in a matter of seconds like a water balloon on a faucet?
Pufferfish are the most poisonous vertebrate in the ocean. A single pufferfish contains enough neurotoxin to paralyze 100 people if eaten, but that doesn't stop the Japanese from enjoying their exotic "fugu" dinners. Tigersharks are immune to tetrodotoxin, but most predators are startled away when a pufferfish blows up in their mouth!
I think the coolest animal facts about Pufferfish are their ability to change colors, mating rituals, underwater crop circles, and their "beak!"
Here, the Pufferfish is explained in great detail. This video contains everything you need to know. Pufferfish live in fresh and saltwater environments all over the world, and they are divided into 2 families. One family has spikes and includes the porcupinefish, and the other family only has soft skin like my pet pea puffer!
