Porcupine Fish

Last week I posted a photo of a Toadfish, taken at Narooma.

Whilst we were standing on the jetty we saw one or two other fish (and a beastie). The photo of the beastie will come later, but in the meantime, this is a Porcupine Fish, or Globefish (Diodon nichthemerus) - as far as I can work out.

Don't be taken in by its cuteness: this fish is even more toxic than the toadfish. This article will give you an idea of its capabilities.
