Toadfish have a venomous spine on their first dorsal fin. Pain from this venom has been compared to a bee or wasp sting. They spend their time burring into the sand and hiding amongst the rocks looking for food. They eat crustaceans, mollusks, amphipods, squid, and other smaller fish.


They can remain alive for an extended period of time out of water. The orange toadfish have poisonous spines that will cause extreme pain. The males have specialized swim bladder muscles that are used to produce the sound known as the ‘boatwhistle’, making sounds that are short and high-pitched. They do this during their mating season April - October.
