[edit] Donating in Wild World

"I won't tell you it's utterly impossible to eat a zebra turkeyfish, but... I really wouldn't recommend it, to be honest. If you insist, though, you know my philosophy: batter, batter, and more batter!"Blathers

The zebra turkeyfish can be found in the saltwater aquarium, swimming along the sand.

[edit] Donating in New Leaf

After donating a zebra turkeyfish to Blathers, it will appear in the section for fish and deep sea creatures, specifically in the large tank in the northeastern room of the fish and deep sea creatures area.

"Zebra turkeyfish have long, beautiful fins that flow like gowns as they swim through the sea. However, these aquatic beauties pack a punch, as their fins are filled with poisonous spikes. Aside from protection against predators, this poison comes in handy for turf wars between males. The losing male succumbs to the poison in a matter of days, making these battles life and death."

A real life zebra turkey fish

The zebra turkeyfish, also known as zebra lionfish, can be found in the Indian and Pacific oceans. The venomous spines on its back are not used for hunting but instead protection from predators such as large eels, frogfish, groupers, and scorpionfish. Interestingly enough, zebra turkeyfish have no natural predators, and specifically have thirteen spines. Like other lionfish, zebra turkeyfish use their large fins to corner prey and quickly swallow them. They hunt primarily from late afternoon to dawn. Captive specimens can be fed frozen krill. Zebra turkeyfish are quite docile, with most stings a result of an unwary human stepping on one accidentally. Though not lethal, a sting from a zebra turkeyfish can be quite painful.
