This is Why You Should Keep Your Fingers Away From Puffer Fish

Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts.

When we hear "dangerous ocean creatures," our minds most likely go to great white sharks or orcas. While it's hard to measure up to these creatures' terrifying prowess, the puffer fish comes pretty darned close (in its own adorable way).

You might not think of it because of the name, but these little buggers pack quite a punch. In fact, they have one of the most powerful bites in all of the animal kingdom. And this video illustrates that point.

Imagine sticking your finger near that mouth? Ouch.


Not so cute anymore, huh?
