Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Occur along coastlines and in estuaries and harbors. Usually found in brackish tidal waters. Feed on invertebrates. Found to contain tetrodotoxin (TTX) and anhydrotetrodotoxin (anh-TTX) which causes paralytic food poisoning (Ref. 54777). Marketed fresh in Mekong delta (Ref. 12693).
