It appears that pufferfish are the friendliest little fish around. These cute little creatures have shown themselves to be faithful companions and curious playmates in videos captured by divers. But their smiley faces hide a deadly secret…

Pufferfish are generally believed to be the second-most poisonous vertebrates in the world, after the golden poison frog. Most species contain a toxin that makes their flesh taste foul and potentially deadly to other fish. This toxin is deadly to humans, although pufferfish is considered a delicacy in Japan.

Why would anyone want to eat these cute little guys?!?
