“Hey, you got a Lionfish. Aren’t those poisonous?” Ian asked me when I reached the surface. “Yes…” I replied, “and I just got stung by it.” This week we went spearfishing in Tulum and hunting Lionfish with Ian and friends and family; after 10 minutes in the water I got stung. Stung by a Lionfish.
I got bitten by Barracuda (painful, but doable and great story at a party). I can’t count the number of Triggerfish that left a lifetime memory on my skin (part of being a spear fisherman). A Nurseshark sucked my leg when we choose the same menu (wish I had that on GoPro). And then now finally, after removing hundreds of Lionfish from the Caribbean without a problem, an experience that beats all the injuries mentioned above.
