The oyster toadfish is not just a noisy swimmer, but holds the distinction of having been to space. Members of the species Opsanus tau traveled to the space station for tests. Known for the male's "foghorn" vocalizations, the oyster toadfish lives in the shallows of the Atlantic, from Maine to the West Indies.
