Fugu: The Deadly Delicacy

It's a chubby little puff of a fish with big expressive eyes, a lovely metallic color and enough neurotoxins in its body to kill dozens of human predators. But if it's expertly prepared, it's considered a rare treat. NPR's Ketzel Levine takes a break from Talking Plants to profile fugu, and meets some food lovers who covet its taste.
