Fish in the family are known variously as boxfishes, cofferfishes, cowfishes and trunkfishes. Boxfishes occupy the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans, generally at middle latitudes, although the common or buffalo trunkfish (Lactophrys trigonus) which lives mainly in Florida waters may be found as far north as Cape Cod. The cowfish variety Lactophrys quadricornis can grow to be 50 cm or less in size, but are generally smaller at higher latitudes. They are a variety of different colours, and are noteable for the hexagonal or "honeycomb" patterns in their skin and skeletons. They swim in a rowing manner. The hexagonal plate-like scales of these fish are fused together into a solid, triangular, box-like carapace, from which the fins and tail protrude. Young boxfishes are more rounded in shape and may exhibit bright colours. Because of these heavy armoured scales, boxfishes are limited to slow movements, but few other fish are able to eat the adults. Boxfish of the Genus Lactophrys also secrete poisons from their skin into the surrounding water, further protecting them from predation. Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel (February 16, 1834 – August 9, 1919), also written von Haeckel, was an eminent German biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor and artist who discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms, and coined many terms in biology, including phylum, phylogeny, ecology and the kingdom Protista.
