Also known as Guineafowl puffer. Diet: Mainly on tips of branching corals, and to a lesser extent on spongers, mollusks, bryozoans, tunicates, algae and detritus
Max. Size: 50 cm
Fun Fact: The male constructs a flattened circle in the sand and when a female nears, the male will swim around throwing up sand. If the female enters the circle eggs are released by the female and fertilized by the male, these then drop into the sand and later hatch. The larvae are planktonic.
