Animal news: a visit with the yellow boxfish

Relax with this video of a funny little fish in bright yellow with black polka dots and shaped like a box.

The yellow boxfish doesn’t look nimble. Squat and rectangular, it resembles a plastic storage bin with fins. Even its coloring suggests clumsiness — juveniles are hard hat yellow with black spots, as if to say “coming through!”

That’s how the Times piece begins. “…plastic storage bin with fins.” Sure. Actually it’s a “juvenile” plastic storage bin with fins.
