The eleventh animal in Chinese zodiac, the dog, is said to be man’s best friend.

What few dog lovers know is that there are three dog-related fish species and there’s no better time than Chinese New Year to make their acquaintance at Sea Life Bangkok, the world-class aquarium at Siam Paragon.

The fish with the greatest resemblance to a dog is the Dog-Faced Puffer with its round eyes and dog-like snout, but that is where the resemblance ends. A lot less friendly that the four-legged pooch, the puffer contains deadly tetrodotox, said to be up to 1,200 times more poisonous than cyanide.

Wolf Eels are eels with fierce wolf-like features and strong jaws that easily allow them to handle hard-shell preys. Their most striking characteristic features are a large head and wide gaping mouth with sharp fangs.

Admission is Bt990 for adults and Bt790 for kids aged three to 11.
