Not getting a good look at the face, but I think it's a Stargazer

You would almost be right, if you weren’t wrong.

Ask me me how I know about the teeth.

Also very good to eat.

Have no idea what kind of fish it is but I'm pretty damn sure those are a set of car keys next to it. Could be wrong though.

Yes northern blow fish.
Had it been a Colombian blowfish the keys would be for a Ferrari and you'd be talking to his little freind.

You are almost right, except you are wrong. They look like keys to door locks.

The chicken of the sea. They are delicious when grilled on the bone they look just like chicken drum sticks! Definitely blowfish. ��

It was nice of that seagull to give your wife a present though.

Fillet, add a dab of horse radish and wrap in prosciutto. Grill each side for 3 minutes and eat, tastes awesome. If you live it's a northern puffer, if you die...... probably not.
