    I’m not very good at fish expressions, but that little puffer seemed quite happy.

      Hard not to anthropomorphize isn’t it?😉 I was thinking he was awfully curious for a
      fish–totally happy and relaxed.

        How about an anti-smoking campaign starring a puffer fish who’s gone clean? Call it Not That Puffer, The Former Puffer.

          Hehe excellent! Even if you’re a puffer fish, you don’t HAVE to puff!

    I will now think of this when someone yells that old chestnut:

    FUGU ME!! FUGU ME!!!

    That’s amazing! It’s such a sustained interaction too – he doesn’t just stop for a second and then dart off. Very cool.

    I love the twirling motion of his little side fins.

      Re twirling fins, me too. My trippy imagination thinks when faeries get their backs scratched their wings do a similar motion.

        Love that thought.

    I’ve gave scritches to a lot of things : dogs, cats, hamsters, ponies, wolves, buffalos, lizards, rats but never a puffer fish, I will have to remedy that as soon as possible.

    This reminds me of an old picture from my family album. It was my uncle on a night dive, holding up one of these guys that had puffed up. Probably one of my favorite pics.

      I remember this. Beautiful friendship.

    Does a puffer purrer? Fishy looked like she was. 😀

    In Japan I was repeatedly offered fugu as a delicacy, but I declined being unwilling to risk my life: I’ll take the salmon, thank you!! And now that I see how cute the puffer is, I’m doubly glad I did not partake. 🙂

    I think that little puffer fish has had a taste of fame before!

        Saved up all his money from his beat boxing days for a life in the warm Hawaiian waters 😉
