Bow Ti Guy of the Day: Puffer Fish

Puffer Fish (ˈpəfərˌfiSH)

Also called puffers, blowfish, bubble fish, globefish, swellfish, toadfish, toadies, honey toads, sugar toads and sea squab, this is quite possibly the animal with the largest amount of names. They are also the 2nd most poisonous vertebrates in the world. These fish inflate when frightened. Hence the multiple names referencing their bulbous nature.
