(Dwarf Lionfish)
03 February 2003

In Greek mythology, the Sirens are creatures with the head of a female and the body of a bird. They lived on an island and charmed mariners with their beautiful songs, luring them to their destruction on the rocks surrounding the island.

This member of the scorpionfish family is a beautiful and ornate fish, however, the fine dorsal spines are venomous and even the slightest touch causes severe pain.
