When frightened puffer fish have the ability to almost double their size by swallowing water or air and inflating their body. Puffer fish are from the Tetraodontidae family and are called puffers, balloonfish, blowfish, bubblefish, globefish and swellfish. Puffer fish are the second most poisonous vertebrate in the world. Their spines are almost sandpaper-like. Blowfish and puffer are both common names for the Tetraodontidae family of fish, which includes 196 or so species. Most puffer fish inhabit saltwater environments, but some species inhabit brackish and freshwater. The Tetraodontidae family is grouped by fish species that have the ability to inflate their bodies by quickly ingesting water. Biologists believe that this ability was developed because puffer fish are clumsy and slow swimmers, making them vulnerable to predators. Puffer fish cannot quickly escape predators, but by inflating themselves, they become much larger than some predators can eat, and their blowing-up action may scare some away.
