Stars and Stripes Puffer

Who doesn't love a face like this? There are several species of puffer fish, but the Stars and Stripes Puffer has to be one of the prettiest of all.

Stars and Stripes Puffer 572x289

Stars and Stripes Puffer

Definitely one of the more interesting fish we have to watch here in Coral Cove, this fish is covered in spots on his upper body and stripes on is lower body. When this fish threatened or stressed, you will see it double in size like a big bubble.  


Puffer fish are not the best swimmers, but have an amazing defence system whereby they rapidly suck in water to turn themselves into a spiky, inedible ball several times their normal size.
