Blowfish on wooden base

Blowfish or porcupinefish have the ability to inflate their bodies by swallowing water or air. The increase in size reduces the range of potential predators to those with much bigger mouths. A second defense mechanism is provided by the sharp spines, which radiate outwards when the fish is inflated.
