Reef Resident

The long-horned cowfish (a.k.a. Horned boxfish) is a highly armored fish; it has hard dense

scales, horns, and is highly poisonous if eaten, much like its close relative the pufferfish. It can

also exude this poison into the water if it is stressed. Due to its heavy armor,

A long-horned cowfish is very slow-moving and uses its pectoral fins to hover over the reef.
