Posted on

Is this geometric composition done by UFO or USO?  Could it be even man-made?

None of the mentioned did it.  It is the puffer fish’s work of art.

Male puffer fish attracts the opposite sex by crafting this “mysterious circle”.  This art piece measuring about 6.5ft in diameter is eventually going to be their love nest.  According to scientist, the more ridges the circle contained, the more likely more female fishes will be attracted.

This amazing craftsmanship was discovered by a Japanese freelance underwater world photographer, in the semi-tropical region of Amami Oshima.

    This is too amazing for words, Sydney! And to think the only thing I know about puffer fish is that they are a particular sushi delicacy for the bold risk-takers because of their poison sack that carries a neurotoxin.

      Yes! This is what I told Marla, we find them poisonous is because we eat them, but I find them so cute as they always wear a smiley face.:)
      Any way, after this post I am sure we learn a extra skill to cheer our lover! :)

    Great post, Sydney! Love it. I agree with likeitiz that the only thing I knew about puffer fish before this was about the poison and sushi delicacy.

      Sydney Fong responded:

      They are poisonous is because we consume them, they are so cute with baby face(just like me). Yes! I heard they are the no. one ranking in sushi world. :)

    Wow, really interesting fact! At first glance, it really looks like UFO’s doing, haha! It would have scared the hell out of me if I was the one who found it…assuming that UFOs are for real or that I could scuba dive, hehe!

      Sydney Fong responded:
      December 4, 2012 at 9:39 am

      Don’t worry if this is UFO, it will be the smaller version, I guess is lesser harm! :)
