The fish from Star Wars

This sunday, spotted a dead pufferfish (I hope i got the name right, maybe its time to watch more discovery channel) on Injambakkam beach. I usually end up on this particular beach on weekend evenings – its rather less crowded (by indian standards – You can visualize about 1 person per 25 feet of beach width) . Sudden death of my camera battery ensured that i could not photograph the unusual creature. To someone who lived 22 years in a desert – this seemed most unusual.
It looked so lucasian (more than a foot long, 8 inch dia, ghastly very wet dirty brown color, with all those spines, and big eye sockets – could have gone straight to any star wars installment) and so dead.
