Re: NEW SERVER--We need YOUR Help!--UPDATE

I clicked on the donation button on our Homepage & it worked. Support dropdown worked for me, too. Thanks in advance! Hm...not sure what I'm doing wrong. I use my Paypal account to make other payments. :-( I just tried again and got the same message. Here's a screenshot: PufferError.jpg Advice appr...

Re: How long does it take for a puffed Pufferfish to unpuff?

Thank you SO much for this info! It sounds as if a puffer can deflate quickly, then.

Your answers are much appreciated!

Re: NEW SERVER--We need YOUR Help!--UPDATE

I tried donating by Paypal using the dropdown menu but Paypal said there was a problem, to try another method. Before I assume this is a problem on my end and start making inquiries, could someone possibly verify that the Puffer Forum paypal donation button still works? Thanks kindly. :)

How long does it take for a puffed Pufferfish to unpuff?

Would anyone know how long it take for a puffed Pufferfish to unpuff after the triggering stimulus (e.g. perception of danger) goes away?

Thanks kindly for any help,

Debbie

Porcupine puffers in the wild: what vegetation? environment?

In case you missed my intro post elsewhere in the forum , I'm illustrating a picture book called SEA-MONKEY AND BOB, written by Aaron Reynolds, coming out from Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers in Fall 2015. It stars a Sea-Monkey named Sea-Monkey, and a pufferfish named Bob. I've decided to u...

Re: Newly registered, illustrating a puffer picture book

Thanks for the welcome, GSP Freak! And I agree that the porcupine puffer is the main puffer in the media. I did investigate other types of puffers, but I need a puffer that kids will be more likely to recognize as a puffer fish AND a puffer that has plenty of online reference videos and images onlin...

Re: Newly registered, illustrating a puffer picture book

Thank you! I've already started checking through images in your wonderful Pufferpedia. I'm in early sketch phase right now. I'm leaning toward choosing the Porcupine Puffer as my model for Bob since he'll looking entertaining (for young readers) in his puffed-up state (and because there are so much ...

Re: a couple shots of my puffers

These are gorgeous pics!

As a newbie puffer fan, one thing I'm learning is that there seem to be sooooo many colours patterns on puffers!
