Description

The Japanese Puffer Fish is a small dull little fish that almost goes unnoticed.  To compensate, he could be one of natures greatest artists.  During mating season, to attract a female, this little fish creates something so beautiful, it is almost unbelievable.  He works tirelessly for a week without rest or sleep, to create a complex and stunning masterpiece on the ocean floor, even taking the time to decorate the ridges with small shells and fragments.

We have created a 39mm 2 troy ounce silver art medal to pay tribute to this amazing little artist.  Please take a moment to watch National Geographic video about the Japanese Puffer Fish, found here:
