Just a lil’ photo contribution of this gorgeous Puffer species. One of the more ornate species that’s pretty common in our southern waters from what I’ve seen (encountered them thrice so far) :)

That's a beautiful puffer for sure, though I've not come across this species as often as you have. My personal puffer encounters comprise mostly of White-spotted Puffer and Starry Toadfish in the southern waters.

Thanks for sharing the pictures!
