Taxonomic classification   Photos
The Pallas's gull (Ichthyaetus ichthyaetus) belongs to the family Laridae under the order Charadriiformes.

Lunartail puffer (Lagocephalus lunaris) is a toxic fish, containing a potent neurotoxin known as tetrodotoxin (TTX). TTX selectively blocks the ion transport of the sodium channel.

Ichthyaetus ichthyaetus have been observed to predate on Lunartail puffer in preference to other edible fish from the fishermen nets. It is not known how this odd feeding habit affects functional physiology of these birds.
