So what exactly is a boxfish?
Besides being the cuties fish ever, the boxfish are small fish that mainly swim in the shallow areas of the warmer parts of the world’s oceans, like coral reefs. They spend their lives passively pruning algae and small invertebrates like crustaceans, worms, and sponges off rocks and coral with their tiny, cute mouths. Their body is rigid with hexagonal bony plates fused together to form a hard shell that encircles their interior, “real” skeletal framework. It has as well rounded corners that makes the animal distinctly rectangular in overall shape. Their shell is so amazing that it has been used as a bionic inspiration for automobile design!
How cool is that?!
