And if you get prick with the spines, its certain death. There is no cure for stone fish so I would stay away from them.
Anglers are just as cool and not as deadly.
Your risking with your life playing with those fishes.

yes they will kill you if not treated. When I lived in Guam they were quite common, the beach lifeguards used to carry .22 caliber pistols for them and the occasional shark
