Cowfish, Lactoria cornuta

The longhorn cowfish, Lactoria cornuta, also called the horned boxfish, is a variety of boxfish from the family Ostraciidae, recognizable by its long horns that protrude from the front of its head, rather like those of a cow or bull.They are a resident of the Indo-Pacific region and can grow up to 50 centimetres (20 inches) long. While badly suited to the home aquarium, the cowfish is becoming increasingly popular as a pet.
