Ever popular at tiki bars, these are real puffer fish, also known as porcupine fish due to their long quills, that have been made into hanging lamps. Spine lengths vary but some of them have spines over an inch long. Others have shorter spines but fatter bodies. Their skin is covered with dark brown blotches which are its natural coloring. Translucent gossamer fins stick out to the side like ears. These taxidermied fish have been puffed out, dried, and a protective coating applied to the skin. Silly acrylic google eyes have been afixed where the real eyes once were. Photos are stock photos, you will not receive this exact fish but one similar. Each fish has the same basic look but varies in the shape it has been dried and may have holes in areas, especially by the gill slits and under the tail, sometimes other places. There are no perfect fish, each one is unique with various bulges and holes, but all are sturdy and solid.
A pendant lamp light fixture has been inserted directly inside the top of the animal. The light has a 6 foot silver cord with inline rotary on/off switch and takes easy to find standard nightlight candelabra bulbs. The light assembly is clipped into the top of the fish and can be easily removed by pinching the clips to allow replacement of bulbs. Comes with a length of fishing line attached for hanging. Puffer fish lamps must be hung by the fishing line provided or by another hanging mechanism of your choosing but not by the electrical cord itself. This prevents long term wear and tear on the electrical cord.
