  • Rating: TV-PG
Off the coast of Japan, the white-spotted pufferfish is at work creating a masterpiece. This three-inch long pufferfish is a male who is trying to attract a mate. He constantly shovels sand into a circle with intricate details. Then he decorates the pattern with shells. If a female approves, they will mate, and the circle will become a nest for the developing eggs.
