How Much Does a Puffer Fish Cost?

A puffer fish, also known as blow fish, is believed to be the second most poisonous vertebrates in the world next to the golden poison frog.  The puffer fish developed the ability to inflate many times it size using water and air in order to avert predators since they are typically slow moving fish.  When the puffer fish is inflated, there are many spines surrounding it, making it inedible for other fish.  The puffer fish contains tetrodoxin that is 1,200 times more fatal than cyanide.  In fact, a single puffer fish contains enough poison to kill thirty human beings and, unfortunately, there has been no known antidote for it yet.

Despite this fatal fact, however, many people still seem to be enchanted with this species.  In Japan, the meat of a puffer, called fugu, is an expensive delicacy.  Other people also find the fish lovable enough to be taken as a pet.
