A Skewed Point of View

If you have not realized it by now, I get on "runs" of certain things! This past week seems to be the infamous Lionfish. They have become quite the problem, from the Florida Keys to the Outer Banks. Just about everywhere they have a bounty on their heads dead or alive. Down in the Keys, they even want to know the GPS location if possible! No doubt a beautiful fish, but also a deadly killer as it eats other fish! They have poisonous barbs and they also encircle their prey with those fins.They seem to take over anywhere they are found and muscle out the native species. Such it is when man steps in, they get too big for the fish tank, they eat the other fish and so man decides to "harmlessly" release him to the ocean. Not so harmlessly it seems!
