Volitan Lionfish (Red)

$60.99

Red Volitan Lionfish

The red lionfish, like all lionfish, carried venom delivered via an array of up to 18 needle-like dorsal fins, is purely defensive. It relies 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, but is rarely fatal.
