The Most Venomous Fish In The World

Meet one of the most poisonous and also ugliest sea creatures - stonefish. This creature of only 15-20 centimeters long with an ugly big head, small eyes and large mouth lives in the coastal regions of Indo-Pacific oceans. They are extremely dangerous. There are cases when a person dies within a few hours or even minutes after the injection of poisonous spines. People who are lucky enough to survive a stonefish sting often remain disabled. The stonefish lives primarily above the tropic of Capricorn. Its main habitat is on coral reefs, near and about rocks, or can be found dormant in the mud or sand. It feeds on small fish and shrimps.
