It is considered as the second most poisonous vertebrate on earth. A single Puffer fish carries enough poison to wipe out 30 humans, and there is no known antidote. The poison assaults the body by paralyzing diaphragm leading to suffocation with the goal of causing death. In spite of the fish’s toxicity, it’s still a popular dish among people. Apparently, its neuro-toxins provide a little bit of a high provided you don’t take more than enough to kill you. The meat of the Puffer fish is a highly prized dish that is prepared by a specially trained and licensed chef; because one false cut can be disastrous.
