    It expands its mouth incredibly fast then sucks in the prey! One of the fastest strikes in the animal kingdom you need a high speed camera to capture the detail. It's too fast for the naked eye!

    It's a common lionfish. Truly beautiful for a 'common' fish.

    How did it eat it? I tried watching it frame by frame but it was so fast it took less than a frame for the lion fish to completely disappear.

    @madarauchiha1218 Dendrochirus Brachypterus. ( The common name is Dwarf Fuzzy Lionfish). That red morph is uncommon...too bad it got eaten!

    this looks edited, but it isn't
    it's like somebody went into an editing program, cut the scene out where the frogfish swallows the lionfish, and replaced that scene with the scene of the frogfish with the lionfish in its mouth, like there was no fluid transition between when the lionfish was alive and when it got caught, it was just instantaneous
    holy mackerel

    That was a lionfish, not a scorpionfish. Lionfish are not poisonous, they have venomous spines, which is completely different.

    • Lord Bloodraven

      jonqps122 You were close, with one correction required: the spines are poisonous because they keep the lionfish from being eaten.
      Venom is what predators when hunting/eating something else. For example, Amazonian Tree Dart Frogs secrete a poison to keep from being eaten.
      Venomous snakes use venom to help kill (and often times digest) their prey.
