Killer Puffer Fish

Killer Puffer Fish

There are more than 120 species of Puffer fish, also known as blowfish. It belongs to the tetraodontidae family. They puff up by sucking up air or water, when they sense an attack by a predator. They grow from one inch to more than two feet. 

Putter fish is primarily known for its toxic poison that shuts down the human nervous system. Despite the fact that it is dangerous it is still eaten as a delicacy in japan. This delicacy is known as ‘fugu’ and is often eaten raw, which is prepared by a trained chef, who carefully removes the poisonous sac - liver and skin. 

A whole lot of people die each year from poorly cleaned puffer fish. The saddest part of it all is the fact that there is no known antidote.
