A minute Saddled Puffer hovering over the reef top, suspended in the softly undulating current. Saddled Puffers have fluorescent green eyes with clown-like markings making them shine out from the reef backdrop, despite their diminutive size. It has four distinct saddle shaped stripes along its back and is mimicked by the less poisonous Blacksaddle Filefish which has evolved to resemble the Saddled Puffer as a deterrent to predators. Saddled Puffers are both highly territorial and haremic, spawning with a different female each day.
