Puffer fish swim like any other fish, by using their fins and streamlined body for movement and gills for breathing. The puffer fish only bloats up its body when it is threatened making it difficult to swim but its not like that all the time, in fact the puffer fish is a very good swimmer.

Pufferfish expand themselves by sucking in water. The water gets pumped into their stomach, causing the pufferfish to bloat/expand/blow up. When this happens, the spikes on the pufferfish stick out, making the fish look very unappetising to predators. Pufferfish can also suck in air to expand thems…

Yes. Pufferfish do not really swim all that fast, they do not rely on speed to avoid enemies. They have spines that help them with this, also they puff up (hense the name) as if to look bigger to ward off enemies. so, sharks are generally faster than pufferfish.

Almost all pufferfish contain tetrodotoxin, a substance that makes them foul tasting and often lethal to fish. To humans, tetrodotoxin is deadly, up to 1,200 times more poisonous than cyanide. There is enough toxin in one pufferfish to kill 30 adult humans, and there is no known antidote.
