Arothron hispidus?
I'm not a marine expert but I did a research on my references about marine puffers.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Hi Blue,

I did some more research and it looks like the largest puffer fish is the Starry Puffer, not the Stars and Stripes Puffer you suggested. Close, though :)

Thanks,
Admin

the largest pufferfish I am aware of is arathron stellatus, (once again, not sure about spelling, too lazy to look it up), they reach a max size of 48" give or take
