Takifugu has a small mouth, and a tooth is sharp, and the meat and the spermary are weakening the poison, the liver and the ovary and the bowels are the thing of the deadly poison, but tends it is edible.
Ocean Sunfish reaches about 3m full length, 1.5ton in weight. Egg-shaped health with a dorsal fin and buttocks fin does not have the tail fins. There are Rudder fin which does a work same as the rudder of the ship behind the body. Floating such as jellyfish or small fire-related uncooked food is staple food. In the ovary, it spread the topic that 300,000,000 most eggs were found in among fish, but the detailed habits are not known.
Long-spine Porcupinefish tends to keep still in the rock shade of a coral reef and the reef at about 30cm full length, the daytime and is active mainly in the night. The tooth which was in the shape of a bill is strong and it crush even hard husks such as sea urchins, shellfish, hermit crabs and eat. Long-spine Porcupinefish is a friend of the globefish, but there is not the poison. When it was surprised to be chased, it put up a splinter growing thick to the body perpendicularly, and it swallow seawater, and a stomach can blow up the whole body like a ball. It seems that the edible danger considerably disappears in this, but it is good, and it is gone into mischief by a diver it cannot swim when it become in this way, and to be able to catch even a grasp easily.
