Lion Fish

Red Lionfish is a venomous carnivore with an average life span of 15 years. Its size is about 30-38 cm and can weigh upto 1.8 kg. A sting from Lionfish could be extremely painful for humans, so divers should try and stay away from it by not touching or poking it.


These are seen mainly in the reefs and rocky crevices of the Indo-Pacific.
