The stonefish is living proof that an animal does not need a powerful jaw or a strong body to be a serious predator. The stone fish is only a few inches long and often only reaches about 5 pounds in weight. However, it is the most venomous fish in the world. It has 13 spines which each contain venomous sacs.

There are only five different species of stonefish. Most of them live in the Indian and Pacific oceans. Part of what makes them so dangerous is their ability to camouflage themselves so well.This is a very discrete fish that uses its disguise to catch its prey.
