Like all puffers, Pandas’ teeth are fused into a solid beak; give them something crunchy to gnaw on occasionally, like shrimp or clam on the half shell. Hailing from the Red Sea, some researchers consider them simply a color variant on the ever-popular Dog-faced Puffer. Image and description courtesy of House of Fins.
