Blurry, Puffed, Unhappy

My dad unearthed an old seine net from the basement so we brought it out to Hammo to see what we could catch. We caught a bunch of cool stuff, but the weirdest were the pufferfish! I had no idea there were puffers this far north. This one is Chilomycterus schoepfi, the striped burrfish, but it's only a baby. Apparently they're more common in southern waters. We also caught a bunch more of these little white-bellied puffers, but I stupidly didn't take any pics of those.
