Dog-faced Puffer hovering over a reef strewn with barnacles and coral formations, displaying the dog like profile from which its common name is derived. Puffers often find places to sleep during the day, often in coral nooks, or on sandy seabeds. They generally are less active during the daylight hours, hunting mostly at night, swimming slowly over the seabed or along the reef edge. However, they can make up for their slow motion movement with unexpected bursts of speed. If still endangered, they have a multitude of natural defenses including spines all over their bodies and the ability to intake water and double their size, hence the common name Puffer.
