Melanie S. stumbled upon this Sir Puffitude with mini winglets and 5 o'clock spine shadow. OK, this whole pic is too much, but the mini winglets are the best part—totally bite-offable!


He's kinda golf-ball sized, huh Mel? Love the blowfish leeps too.

Awww! We have a stuffed one in the bathroom :)

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:02 AM

He's probably not too happy being out of the water like that.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:09 AM

That is so rediculously cute, I think I'm going to explode. I mean, who could resist a bite-sized little puffer guy like that?

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:11 AM

Wow. How does he propel himself through the water with those teeny-tiny fins? He must have some serious tail action.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:12 AM

Ok, he is very cute, but please tell me that no fishies were harmed in the making of this photo? Please?

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:14 AM

What lezlee said!

Hopefully he made it back in to the water unharmed.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:16 AM

Spiky fish fluffball!!
Who would have thought fish could be cute?

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:17 AM

haha.. i hope he was put back in the water! >.<

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:20 AM

Hee! Hims has a very solemn face: "Put me down NOW or carnage will ensue."

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:21 AM

I hope he did not explode from his own cuteness. It looks like a serious possibility.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:22 AM


Blowfalo wings.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:23 AM

Poor little guy! They puff up because they're stressed - he needs to go right back in the water.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:25 AM

He's too much, but let's put him back so he can live!

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:27 AM

Part of me objects to the fish-out-of-water business...

...and the other part is screaming OMIGOD LOOK AT THE FISHIE.

I'm torn. ;-; Let's assume fishie got back in the water immediately after the picture was snapped.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:29 AM

"Put me down NOW or carnage will ensue."

Classic, thinker!!

Yes, he's stressed. But he's a young'un and needs the puff practice so he can grow up to be a serious badass. :D

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:30 AM

awwwww leetle feeshy!! well, blow me down!

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:32 AM

Oooooo.. he so fierce! :P

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:37 AM

Is roundness a rule of cuteness. If it isn't it should be.

I too hope fishy puffkins got back in the water safely.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:42 AM

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! The puffy lips! The buggy eyes! The sublime roundness! TOO MUCH!!!!

"If you don't put me down, I'll...I'll...I'll PUFF UP and LOOK CUTER!!"

ahahahahahahahaha!!! Kin I haf it?

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:53 AM

SQEEEEEEE- not ususally fond of fish, but that lil' puffer is anerable. I too am strongly hoping he was immediately returned to his normal element, and swam off saying "Geez, those big pink things are scary".

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:54 AM

Ummm... this is NOT CUTE on account of the fact that the fish may look hilarious and adorable, but holding it out of water like this is extremely stressful and potentially damaging to the fish. I have a lot of experience with saltwater fish and I work in a pet store, so I tell you all this with complete certainty. This is the equivalent of pinching a baby to make it cry because one is amused by the screwed up face it makes.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:56 AM

Just watched "Nemo" with the kids this weekend (again); this little guy is much cuter than "Bloat", the blowfish from the dentist's tank. Much cuter.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 07:56 AM

He is teeny and cute- but, I agree with what people have said- blowfish only blow up out of stress. It releases toxins into their system and if they blow up too much, it can cause serious damage. And folks, that is *so* not cute. =)

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:05 AM

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Teeny little pufferfish bebeh! And it's ROUND! (Animators love circular shapes.) I can practically hear him saying "I'm NOT your fugu!"

*gives the little guy a feesh kees*

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:21 AM

eewww.. that doesn't look cute to me.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:22 AM

[bulging eyes] ...WOW, times two.
What a day this has been for CO pix, and it's still MONDAY MORNING, even!

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:28 AM

My first reaction was that I really vocalised that damned word "squee"... then I thought that I probably just squeed (not squid!) over a dead fish - but whatever. :oD

If you say that he could have been let back to water I'm relieved.

I hate fish, they are boring at the best and I don't eat them either. But THIS is one cute little fellow. :oD

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:30 AM

"If you don't put me back in the water, I'll...I'll...hold my breath!!"

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:30 AM

From Wikipedia: "The puffer fish itself has immunity to the poison due to a mutation in the protein sequence of the sodium channel pump on the cell membranes."

I'm sure the leetle fish is okay. Geez.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:30 AM

I squealed.


 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:31 AM

First I'd like to say the picture is well done, not a blur or what, this is lovely and we get to see this cute fish. Whom is really tiny!! For what I've read in the comments, it could be a baby?

Also, I guess Melanie S. saw it, thought it was cute and wanted to make a picture of it, maybe for us.
Now, please Melanie, could you reassure us and confirm that the fish was indeed put back in the water fast? :-) Thank you.

And to Nonsequitur: Reading "This is not cute" by someone who works in a Pet store that's a bit much. Because a Pet Store, now THAT is not cute, even really ugly.
That would be great if you could "blow" it off (figure of speech) from the inside, cause that kind of thing is uncute and mostly unconscious. Thank you, and good luck. Peace.

I now have the Simpson's episode in my head where Homer ordered the blowfish at the japanese restaurant.

[Japanese accent]Poison. Poison. Poison. Tasty Fish!{/Japanese accent]

Oh, and for those worrying, I'm going to assume that the fishey went back into the water right after the pic was taken. Ya know, assuming the worst about any number of pics on CO gives you vicious wrinkles and causes totally unnecessary stress dudes. Mellow. Stop assuming the worst of your fellow humans for crying out loud.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:42 AM

fishy fishy from the sea,
the way you puff up makes me Squeeeee.
I love your feeshy leeps and fin,
it makes me want to squeee agin!!!

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:42 AM

maybe it would make a fart sound when it explode...oh ne that would not be cute....oh.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:44 AM

I weel kees you. And then I weel fly away.

Or maybe I'll fly and then bounce.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 08:48 AM

Suuupah Qte.
He will HUFF and he will PUFF and he will BLOW YOUR HOUSE DOWN!!!!

Hate to say it but mebeh he is dead! My boss was in Mexico a couple weeks back and they saw a dead blowed up puffer fish. It was EW

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 09:10 AM

BTW... "blowfeesh leeps" are actually beaks.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 09:11 AM

I looked and there is in fact not rule of cuteness for roundness...

It seems to me that the rounder any object or animal is the cuter people seem the think it is.

Ergo, I once again make my bid for a new rule of cuteness....


(Trying to divert from the dead fishy convo......)

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 09:16 AM

I could smooch heem! Carefully tho.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 09:18 AM

i have no words to say a about bebeh puffer fish. blows him a little kees.

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 09:24 AM

it's cute but not amused. of course this doesn't mean the picked him up just to puff him, probably he was already puffed so they snapped a quick picture. the worrisome part is i have read a puffer can die if it puffs when too young. let's hope he's not. i had a pet brackish one- great guy- would let me hold him gently in the water, nibbled fingers and tried to sleep on leaves- alas too fat and would roll off. i cried when sebastian died.

Have you ever seen one of these cuties eat? Not so cute! Drop leetle feeder fish in tank and ffffffttttt! It's all gone!

 |  Jan 29, 2007 at 09:26 AM

the winglets are just teeny cuz they're "collapsed." When in water they open like little fans. Supa cute. We need to see more feeshes here on CO!
