A GOOFY pufferfish shows off the toothy smile that almost caused her to starve to death.
Goldie the porcupine pufferfish could not eat properly because of her oversized gnashers.
A vet put the five-year-old in anaesthetic water and lifted her out occasionally to burr down the inch-long teeth.
When lifted out she was held in a damp towel to protect against her inflating defence mechanism.
Owner Mark Byatt, 64, of Leybourne, Kent, said: “She is thriving and none the worse for her visit to the dentist.”
