Pufferfish, also known as Blowfish, are one of the more interesting species of fish found in the ocean. .  More than 120 species of pufferfish exist worldwide. They are ‘inflatable’ and biologists believe they have this property to protect them from predators, since they are slow swimmers, which make them more vulnerable to predators
