Latin Name: Scorpaena
General Size: 9"
The spotted scorpionfish (family Scorpaenidae) is commonly
observed on reefs of Florida. Caution is advised when
swimming near the reef as they are very well camouflaged
and if one is punctured by their dorsal spine(s) a powerful
venom will ensure that the diver's day will be ruined.
They are not known to be fatal but the pain will be
enough for the victim to wish for death.
