That looks more like a Northern Puffer

very well could be, not super well veresed in Salt.  Would like more input on it before I change it

 

Southern Puffers would very rarely be on the SC coast (they rarely go north of FL) and they have little white ring markings on the back and especially on the cheeks (Northern Puffers just have dots)

Sounds good thanks, the range info I have found suggests the same. I will update it
