A Stunning Artwork By The Japanese Puffer Fish

With his stumpy body and beady eyes, this little Puffer Fish doesn`t look much like an aquatic sex god. But in fact, when it comes to courtship technique he totally rules the waves. Over many days, the male puffer engages in an extraordinary labour of love – a beautifully constructed boudoir in which to lure a mate. The male’s building skills are key, because any potential females will judge him on the quality of his workmanship.
The textured sand sculpture not only attracts mates but also serves as protection when the fish pair and lays eggs.
