General information on Porcupine Puffer
The Porcupine Puffer is a spiny animal with appendages that cover most of its body. Its color can range from light grey to mottled shades occasionally that have dark spots. The teeth of the animal are actually a fusion-like beak. This Porcupine Puffer lacks pelvic fins however, it has learned to make use of pectoral fins in order to move around. An aquarium that is large and fish-only with a solid protein skimmer can be a great place to keep it. It is known to sometimes be aggressive by nipping the fins off tankmates, leaving a circular hole. It is known to eat invertebrates within the reef aquarium. It has the ability to inflate its body up to nearly double the size it is normally when threatened. The flesh of the animal is toxic if they are consumed.
