Puffer Fish

Puffer fish create an imposing appearance by pumping air into their expandable stomach. They can be as dangerous to other fish as they look, with small teeth that form powerful cutting and crushing plates. Most puffers also produce a poison, concentrated on their skin and other organs.

The Long Island Aquarium Puffer Fish exhibit showcases the cowfish, boxfish, and porcupinefish.
