  1. Did you know there is such a thing as trypophobia, which is the fear/aversion to patterns of closely spaced spots/dots? It would be ideal if this fish's predators had trypophobia. Posted 2 years ago
    1. Yes, that's true but this pufferfish has their main defence mechanism too to puff up, should the spots did not deter their predators. Posted 2 years ago
