Saddle Puffer

Saddle Puffer

The Saddle Puffer, like most pufferfish, can inflate its body to almost double its size when frightened or threatened. This species belongs to the genus of Sharp-nosed Puffers due to their facial characteristics. Its sharp-nosed snout has teeth in the form of almost a beak that is used to crack open invertebrates. Because of this, the Saddle Puffer is not safe for reef tanks as it will nip at all invertebrates, and can leave circular bite marks on other fish.
