Activity overview:

Weird Australian Animals-The Stone Fish

The stone fish is found in waters off the coast of Australia and some species even live in freshwater.

What makes this Australian fish weird? Several things

First, take a look at it.
It resembles a stone. The shape and color of the stonefish helps it to blend into the ocean floor.
This allows it to ambush nearby fish for a tasty meal.

The other weird and scary feature of the stonefish is that it has venom that can kill humans.
The stonefish is one of the most venomous fish in the world
Because they blend into the ocean floor many swimmers step on this fish which triggers it to inject venom into the victim.
Good news, most victims can treat the injection and do not die.

Finally, this weird fish can live out of water for up to 24 hours.
