the lion must have passed over him and stung him with his tail
The tail is the caudal fin, not the anal fin.

The spines on the dorsal, pelvic, and anal fins are venomous.
And that is correct, I just spewed some misinformation from the past At any rate, I highly doubt the lion envenomated the angler.

glad you liked the article.
the probably bumped into the lion at night if any thing, i doubt the lion went after the angler too sting him. did you look at the anglers body for a puncher wound? take a look at you lions spine and see if the tip broke off in the angler

Hi,

I've been dealing with Lionfishes for over Ten years now. I've been hit twice being my fault and I can tell you it's no joke the second time. On other fishes I never seen it happen, Lionfishes don't go around sticking anyone. They just bend forward and shows themself off. I believe if a Lionfish stings another fish the fish might be hurt for a couple of days. If you hear about a fish getting hit by a Lionfish and it die due to the cause please let me know what type of fish it was.
I did see in my 250 gallon tank two males go at it but they used their mouth instead. Of course one of the males had to go bye-bye to a bigger aquarium at the National Aquarium in Baltimore.

I got stung by a tiny pictus cat once in the finger. That turned most of my hand numb, can only imagine how the lion's sting feels. OUCH!!

I remember it being red with gray patches... It was sure ugly and unhappy when I shook my hand to get him off... Man it brings back memories...my arm is getting tight just thinking about it... That is one pain I don't want to experience again...There is no cure for it but time... Took a few days for me..
