Poison!
Published on Wednesday, September 25, 2013 by

Can you believe we are now in the 25th day of this photo challenge?  What are we going to do with ourselves when it is over?  I can’t think about that right now.  What I CAN think about is today’s theme… poison.

Pufferfish, blowfish, puffers…  call them what you like, they are delicious.  Well… the ones that don’t contain poison.

Of course there are delicious ones that we don’t eat.  You may recall George, from a previous photo challenge.  He did circus tricks.  We set him free.

This guy?  He is the poison kind.  We will call him Fugu.  We set him free too!

  • Holy crap, I’m glad we don’t have fish like that in Finland, Fugu is terrifying! As to what we’re going to do with ourselves once it’s over..? First, sleep for 24 hours, then catch up on a month’s worth of LIFE that I haven’t attended to.

      I’m happy to hear somebody has a life to return to. I don’t. I’m like the walking dead.

  • Great pic of a very strange animal. Well done. (that fish does not make me hungry)

    Katherine, it’s been AGES since I’ve seen one of these fish. We used to call it a blowfish.

    Fantastic photo for this theme! And I love the name you came up with…Fuju!

  • Oh my! That’s an ugly fish. You caught that?

  • ReformingGeek

    Evil Twin needs a pet fish. Hee Hee. Um, no.

  • Holy shit!!!! What an AWESOME photo – even though Fugu is totally terrifying!

  • Jay of The Depp Effect

    Fugu! AAAAAAAUGGHHH! Run Away … !

  • Fugu is one fugly fish! But what a great shot of him, Katherine. Well done!

  • Holy Fugu, Katherine! That thing could probably swallow Fake Barbie whole!

  • Eat a puffer fish? Figudaboutit.

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    That is the world’s most-bizarre animal. I would never eat one.

  • Wow! He’s beautiful.

  • Jackal

    ewwww, not going to kiss that any day soon. Oh wait, what it’s NOT a frog?

  • This is my favorite pic of the day because he’s so freaky!

  • I can’t believe people eat those things, or at least things that look like that.

  • Fugu is a lucky puffer. I am sure he is quite thankful that you set him free. Poor thing…not very attractive, is he?

  • He is a lucky puffer or is that fucker?
