The venom from a stonefish can even kill a human if left untreated. The fish camouflages itself to take the appearance of a rock in the water. Its dorsal fin spines inject the venom into the victims. The pain exerted on the victim is often indescribable. Swelling occurs and causes the nearby tissues to die and blood flows out of the area affected by the spine. If the overflow of the blood isn’t stopped, it can even lead to death. There have been many Stonefish related cases reported in Australia on a regular basis. The fact that the anti-venom for this fish’s venom is reported to be the second most administered venom in Australia tells us everything we need to know about the regular Stonefish attacks.
