Pretty much everything about the venomous red lionfish—its zebra stripes, long, showy pectoral fins, and generally cantankerous demeanor—says, "Don't touch!"
The venom of the red lionfish, 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, and a sting from a lionfish is extremely painful to humans, potentially deadly.
This illustration is a brilliant interpretation of this impressive marine animal and cleverly represents its stunning beauty yet deadly fins, which are the central focus of this piece.
