cowfishLactoria cornuta

This strange fish lives in lagoons in tropical seas.
It can easily be recognised by the 2 horns that protrude from the front of its head as well as two at the back of its body, which can grow again if they break!
Its scales are fused together into bony plates that protect its body like a carapace.

Scientific name: Lactoria cornuta
