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.
