Un peix lleó es passeja pel vaixell enfonsat Saint George, a Bayahibe, a uns 40 metres de profunditat.

Pterois is a genus of venomous marine fish, commonly known as lionfish, native to the Indo-Pacific. Pterois, also called zebrafish, firefish, turkeyfish or butterfly-cod,is characterized by conspicuous warning coloration with red, white, creamy, or black bands, showy pectoral fins, and venomous spiky fin rays : Wikipedia.

A few years ago there was an accident with ilegal traffic of animals in Panama and dropped to the Caribbean sea a container with this animal that has reproduced and expanded since then. This one is in Saint George ship, under 40 meters deep. It's a very dangerous fish, but also is beautiful.
