Beware the dangerous stonefish! These deadly creatures have venomous needles all along their backs. A sting from one of these spines causes terrible pain and, if not treated, can even lead to death. Worst of all, you might not ever see what stung you! Stonefish are extremely well camouflaged, and get their name from their stone-like appearance. Packed with spectacular photos and fascinating facts, Stonefish: Needles of Pain introduces kids to the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, and behavior of these dangerous fish. A narrative format will keep readers turning the pages for more.
