(The above comic is not a factual representation of Lionfish...carry on.)
Fun Fact: Though not a large fish the lionfish have spines that release a venom which is quite potent. These fish are very territorial and intimidate other creatures with their outlandish looks.
It is also an invasive creature. Originally from India and the Western Pacific, they were brought to Florida as an aquarium fish. After a hurricane destroyed a few tanks they started to appear around the lower coast of Florida and have now spread all the way to Long Island, NY.
The diving bell worked. Thomas thought I was insane to try it, but the scientific benefits of diving so low were amazing. Besides after that mess with the lion fish I needed new means to research this vast and stunning world. My foot still ached at the thought of that spiny creature.
Thank guys see you tomorrow.
