Devil Scorpionfish

Scorpaenopsis diabolus


As well as being very painful, the venom of Scorpionfish opens up your blood vessels. This drops your blood pressure and makes you feel faint and sick. It will also alter your heartbeat and affect your breathing, starving you of Oxygen. Some say it can make you Hallucinate, but what it really does is open a door into Hell where you meet the Devil. Guardian: Emile Allard
