Today I learned that there are venomous fish in existence. And I’m not talking poisonous like the pufferfish, I’m talking have venom sacks and can inject you with some deadly toxins venomous. Properly venomous like a snake.
Of these fish the most toxic of them belong to the genus “Synanceia”, commonly called “Stonefish”. They’re honestly ugly as sin, and have spines along the back that are hooked right up to some glands full of a nasty bunch of neurotoxin that can make your leg hurt so bad you want it cut off.
That’s right, this little fish can make you want to hack your foot off with a rusty ax if you step on it. If the victim does not receive treatment in a reasonable amount of time, it can even prove fatal, making this one of the planets most deadly animals. This means that an ugly fish that looks like a stone could kill you. Which would be revenge for all the slights against the fish’s perceived lack of attractiveness, I guess.
