Photograph taken at the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium. It’s located in Sarasota, Florida. A fun educational museum featuring exhibits of marine life. There’s a laboratory for the care of injured marine life.

Lionfish have 18 venomous spines: 2 pelvic spines, and 13 dorsal spines.

    • I was pleased I came across them in my files. I visited this aquarium last year before these difficult times. It’s a wonderful place. I was happy the glare from the glass enclosures didn’t show in the photographs, Tina. Thank you for your lovely comment and for visiting. Be Safe … 😷 🙏🏻 😊 Isadora 😎
