Fugu rubripes


Fugu rubripes
Japanese Puffer fish. Notorious for the poison (tetrodotoxin) found in lethal amounts in the poison gland (that must be removed before the fish can safely be eaten) and at low levels elsewhere. Also of interest and utility because of the very low levels of repetitive DNA found in the genome.
