same here, lionfish hurts but the hemotoxic venom of a rattlesnake will destroy tissue and cause alot more damage. knock on wood i have not been bitten by a venomous snake yet : )

another silly question, this lions spikes usually look soggy, except when it feels threateened it opens them up like a shield. can you actually avoid getting stung? in the way that the actual fish decides when to sting and when not?

it is very possibly to avoid getting stung, i interact with, hand-feed, and even pet lions on a daily basis and like i mentioned above, have never been stung when I was aware that a lion was in the tank. I'll warn you though, i've gotten lucky a few times and i have been "poked" without actually getting stung before, so it is risky. a cat only has 9 lives : )
