    Here is a fish that looked like it was half sting ray and half puffer fish. Saw this guy at about 11 meters down. The tail fin when fully extended was quite pretty and looked like a fan.

    Belonging to the Family of Boxfishes , this is the LACTORIA CORNUTA , common name COW BOXFISH . A highly demanded Aqurium fish in the USA . The small ones have shorter tails but are less colorful. Also they have much shorter "horns " unlike this one on the picture. As you will see when looking close . it even has "bottom "rear end " horns "as well. Attaached a picture taken in a Aqaurium and yes even a Post stamp from the Philippines in value of 4 Peso .
