Let’s start with the most fearsome, namely the spotted pufferfish. This particular species was only recorded in Italy in 2013. What are its characteristics? It has dark gray and silver spots. It is very dangerous because it contains a powerful poisonous toxin which is not eradicated even with cooking.
We continue with the striped rabbit and the black rabbit; they are edible species, but special attention must be paid to their spine which is dangerous even after the death of the animal. They were seen in our country for the first time in 2003, and the second in 2015.
We conclude with the lionfish: a real danger not only for Italy, but for the whole world. It is said to have invaded much of the Atlantic coast. As with the previous ones, this species is also edible, but watch out for its thorns. They too are decidedly sharp.
