Deadly Puffer Fish Kills Big Fish

Flickr user Jack Hynes found this head of a fish on a beach in Fiji. A closer look shows a likely cause of death.

A large fish seems to have attempted to eat a puffer fish, which inflated, and killed the large fish with its toxin, tetrododoxin. The rest of the large fish's body has been eaten as well.
