Check out that Cowfish, man. This little dude is found on the sand and mud bottoms of lagoons and reefs. They feed on benthic invertebrates, but of course you all knew that. They’re about 25 centimeters long and hang out in the Southeast Atlantic Ocean. And get this –  the bodies of Cowfish are covered in a toxic mucus which can be released when stressed. Don’t stress out a Cowfish, man. Anyhoo, Roundbelly Cowfish.
