Stonefish

The stonefish couldn’t miss in this list of 10 most dangerous fish; although it’s a shy and little known fish, it could be even the world’s most poisonous one. He lives in the waters of the Pacific and Indian Ocean, and feeds on small fish and crustaceans. But the real danger with this fish is that direct contact with the spines of its fins can be deadly to humans because of the potent poison they contain; and when it camouflages it resembles a rock, making it almost unrecognizable and can be stepped on by accident.

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.
