African Mappa Puffer Fish or Map Puffer Fish



African Mappa Puffer Fish also known as the Scribbled Toadfish and Map Puffer Fish has a very distinct and vivid appearance. The main color ranges from light tans to dark yellows and it has a network of black “scribbles” covering the body, forming an intricate pattern.

It lacks pelvic fins, but has learned to use the pectoral fins to move about the aquarium. Its teeth are actually a fused beak-like structure. The African Mappa Puffer Fish has the ability to inflate its body to almost twice its normal size when threatened or alarmed to discourage others from trying to eat it, and parts of the flesh are poisonous if digested.
