The Lionfish
Lionfish is a type of marine fish. It is also known as dragon fish, scorpion fish, tiger fish and turkey fish due to characteristic appearance. There are 10 different species of lionfish that are native to the Pacific Ocean. Lionfish appeared recently on the eastern coast of the United States after they managed to escape from the private aquariums. Lionfish in North America are regarded as invasive animals because they do not have natural enemies and they easily eliminate native species when competing for space and food. Lionfish live near the coral reefs and in the rock crevices. These fish are highly adaptable, they have high reproduction rate and their number in the wild is large and stable. Lionfish is not on the list of endangered species. Lionfish are famous by their beautifully colored bodies, covered with red, white, orange, black or brown stripes (it depends on the species). Stripes are arranged in zebra-like pattern.
