Most Awesome Fish Ever In the Universe of All Time: The Cowfish!


“Moo!”

Today we will learn something new about my very favorite fish, the Cowfish, which is “probably the most well known of the Boxfish! The Cowfish, Longhorn Cowfish, or Long-horned Cowfish can be seen in almost every public aquarium. They are hardy and they love to eat! Cowfish are easily recognized by the horns on the forehead and the bottom rear of the body. These horns make them hard for predators to swallow. In any case their flesh is poisonous and would not make for a very good meal! NOTE: The Cowfishes in the genus Lactoria, especially this Cowfish, Longhorn Cowfish, or Long-horned Cowfish must be dealt with carefully. If overly harassed or stressed, it can release the toxic substance, Ostracitoxin. Make sure you keep this fish in a comfortable and not overly stressed environment, and keep it well fed!”
