Where Can You Find Lionfish?
What Do They Do
Lionfish use their venomous tentacles for defense from predators, not for catching their prey. To hunt, they lay in wait until their prey is near enough for them to lunge forward and swallow their prey in a single bite. Their diet is mainly small fish and crustaceans which they can corner or coral by opening out their fins. In addition, they can blow jets of water at their prey. Presumably to disorientate them. Most are active hunters in the morning from sunrise to midday.
