Lion Fish at Florida Aquarium in Tampa

    Newer Older

    Taken with my Nikon D50 with some mild photoshopping to blow out the color a bit since the tank glass muddied the photo a little.

    I had no idea that these fish are venomous but my wife informed me of how lethal these fish are and pointed me at a story that was on Fark.com recently. A Lion fish owner was attacked and almost died from this beautiful creature!

      That still doesn't explain poisonous snake owners though. I prefer pets that can't EAT other pets.
