Volitan Lionfish (Black)
The venom of the lionfish, delivered via an array of up to 18 needle-like dorsal fins, is purely defensive but something to stay away from. Volitan lionfish rely on camouflage and lightning-fast reflexes to capture prey, mainly fish and shrimp. A sting from a lionfish is extremely painful to humans and can cause nausea and breathing difficulties so this fish is NOT FOR CHILDREN.
