Todd, who filmed this attack, claimed: "This is the first recorded sighting of a fish, other than shark or grouper, eating a lionfish." The lionfish has destroyed most of the ecosystems in the Caribbean Sea and throughout Florida, and has no natural predators. The filmer commented: "This is a positive sign that life can adapt and start finding ways to restore balance to the reef ecosystems."
