There are several species of lionfish, also known as turkey fish or fire-fish. The ones shown here grow to about a foot long, living on small fish and crustaceans. Lionfish have poisonous spines, but while the stings are painful they're not lethal to humans. Some species of lionfish make good aquarium pets, although the larger ones require very large tanks.
