Long-Spine Porcupine Fish – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Long-Spine Porcupine Fish:

The Long-Spine or Long-Spine Porcupine Fish (also called the Spiny Balloonfish) is found in much of the world's oceans. They generally inhabit muddy sea bottoms, lagoons and coral reefs. The fish is well-known for it's strange ability to make itself very large by swallowing air and water when threatened. It does this to make itself very unappealing to predators because of the massive spines that stick out when inflated (they lay back on the fish normally.) The spines of the porcupine fish are larger than the pufferfish (which it is sometimes confused with.) The Long-Spine Pufferfish is used in Chinese medicine, even though it can be very poisonous if not prepared correctly.
