These Porcupinefish (Diodontidae Tetraodontiformes) have the most adorable faces!

They are generally quite timid, bit with patience, one may come out of hiding to investigate you. Years ago these were commonly hunted, killed and mounted in their "inflated" state and sold as souvenirs Fortunately, this practice has largely come to an end in most parts of the world.
