I was surprised to see this Kokala (spiny porcupinefish) swimming along the Ala Wai Canal, a waterway connecting to the sea in Honolulu that is famous for being highly polluted. It was interesting to learn that this species is quite commonly seen here, and is probably the largest resident. I observed it pushing around the many tilapia that also call the waterway home.

Dromia dormia

As a sponge crab,this species likes to carry a sponge on its back. I still don't fully understand how this offers protection though.
