The long silver fish with the mouthful of teeth sees him at the same time. With a twitch of his tail, the barracuda zips toward the puffer. But just as quickly, the puffer gulps water. As he sucks the water in, his body puffs out, just like a balloon being blown up. He doesn’t have scales as most fish do. Instead, the tiny sharp spines that cover his body start to stick out. He becomes a round, prickly ball with a face. The barracuda coasts by, but the puffer fish looks too big and thorny to mess with.
