Friendly Pufferfish

Friendly Pufferfish

Story from my Kayaking Adventure …

Taking a break to stretch, David was off to the side looking for crabs, while I walked along the shoreline looking for any unusual and neat looking seashells.  

I had picked up a couple that I had thought were pretty impressive, that’s when David called me over to show me a fish. I’m thinking, “A fish? Really? I’ve seen fish before. Wait until he sees the seashells I found!”. Looking where he was pointing, it was a Pufferfish! I’ve only seen small ones in pet stores, so this was so cool!. I looked at the seashells, looked at the pufferfish, looked at the seashells….  and then… ditched the seashells, sigh.

This Pufferfish nonchalantly kept swimming, however it let David put his hand underneath him and pick him up. The pufferfish was about 6 inch, chubby, and the neatest little guy. You gotta love nature! Not holding him for very long, the pufferfish left David’s hand and continued swimming in the area …and I stopped looking for seashells.

  1. Sounds like fun! Reminds me that a roommate had a tank with a puffer fish – the little guy used to come to the edge of the tank to meet me when I came home from work just like a puppy. Maybe he just knew I might feed him but I was still flattered and impressed!
