This Lionfish was taken at Pine Knolls Shores Aquarium, Bogue Banks, Outer Banks, NC. during a visit there. I think they are one of our more beautiful fish species even though they are one of the more dangerous ones to come in contact with. The Lionfish is colorful and the design of the body gives various predators a strange signal. It tells them that this isnít a good type of food source for them to be about to contend with. They simply arenít sure what it all about and they donít want to take the risk that they could be putting themselves in danger by going after it. They are considered to be one of the most dangerous fish in the world due to their venom. The Lionfish has some very unique characteristics that draw attention to it. The body is very flat and it has lines of orange and white like zebra stripes. They have pectoral fins that are very long. They can grow to a size of about 1 foot. They donít weigh more than 2.6 pounds.
