Lolo was a pufferfish. For those who don´t know what a pufferfish is, they are fish that inflate like a balloon to show the spikes they have on their body to protect themselves when they perceive a threat.

When Lolo sees sharks or other big fish around he uses this technique to automatically protect himself.

Lolo thought from inside her stomach: “I forgot that she’s a shark and her instinct had to appear sometime.
