Web Burrfish Chilomycterus antillarum

Web Burrfish Chilomycterus antillarum

Web Burrfish Chilomycterus antillarum tan body with two gold rings around eyes, 12 spines, up to 10 inches long. Other names Blowfish, Bridled Burrfish, Burrfish, Globefish, Hedgehog Fish, Pacific Burrfish, Spiny Box Puffer, Spiny Boxfish, Striped Burrfish and Swell toad. Like other puffers they inflate themselves with water to escape capture causing the spine to become erect and the body is harder for a predator to swallow. Not to be confused with a balloon fish which has intense aquamarine eyes. Location: Bonaire part of the Caribbean Netherlands and part of the Leeward Antilles, February 2021.
