    Saw this fish at Six Flags Animal Kingdom. Thought it was the most unusual looking fish i'd ever seen!

    It's got a long rectangular body with a funny looking nose. Pink lips too!

    What do you suppose it is? No placard to tell what it was but it was housed with a giant eel.

    I would guess some kind of box fish.. not sure which variety.

    He's cute!!

    Looks like a scrawled Cowfish.

    It looks like some kind of puffer. Not sure what kind though. I've never really been interested in SW.

    The fish was rocking side to side to stay afloat. Or at least that's what it seemed like. Never seen a rectangular fish like that before!
    Here's what was inside the cave looking out - Grampa eel ;)
