Welcome to this unique underwater face-off between two of nature's most venomous creatures - the Stonefish and the Cone Snail! I'll be providing you with the play by play for this intriguing three-round encounter. Let the battle begin!

Contender 1: Stonefish

The Stonefish, also known as Synanceia, is one of the most venomous fish in the world. It has a flattened body with a large mouth and eyes on top of its head. Its skin is covered in mottled brown and gray patterns, which help it blend in with its surroundings.

They are found in warm waters around the world and can range in size from just a few centimeters to over 20 centimeters in length.
