The Nativity scene we suggest is composed of specimens of the order of Tetraodontiformes, thus designated as having four teeth and potentially short or long spines, potentially lethal by the release of the Tetrodontoxine toxin.
They come from temperate and tropical waters.
The largest specimens were brought to the Museum by João Celestino in 1956; the smallest was donated by Maria Julia Labrincha in 1987.
