A porcupinefish has been added to our Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit!
This species is known for its ability to inflate with water. While inflated, the fish is covered in protruding sharp spines. Porcupinefish can reach a maximum length of 3 feet and dine on a mix of sea urchins, gastropods and crustaceans!
