Puffer fish have thick, leathery, skin and do not have any scales. They have small mouths, fins, and spines deep down in their pores. So when the puffer fish is calm you can not see the spines but when it feels threatened their spines can quickly become visible as they fill themselves with water. When they are puffed up they are almost spherical. This is easy for them because they don't have any ribs or pelvic bones. But to keep themselves form blowing up too much they have special controls in their muscles to stop the expansion. Puffer fishes are generally small about three to twenty inches but some can grow as large as three feet. The puffer fish like to feed on invertebrates, algae, clams, mussels, shellfish, mollusks, crabs, snails, sea urchins, corals, sponges, and other crustacean animals. They like to grind up their prey with their heavy teeth. - The puffer fish is the second most poisonous animal in the world.
- The puffer fish is actually a very slow fish.
- Many types of puffer fish can change the patterns on their skin to match their environment.
- Puffer fish are very aggressive towards each other.
