Lions Paintings by Paul Miners

Paul started painting at the age of 5, and developed a passion for art that has stayed with him for over 35yrs. Whilst attending trade school in the mid 80’s to become a signwriter/illustrator, Paul stumbled across a life drawing class which he attended.

Although Paul excelled in painting and understanding the human form, it was always the wild side of Nature that interested him the most. It was this interest, combined with his passion for art, which has lead to some of the most elegant & unique wildlife art today.
Over the past few years Paul has expanded from the more traditional style of painting to digital painting. This process gives Paul a lot more options for adding his own artistic expression to nature’s awesome beauty.

Synanceia - Master of Camouflage

Synanceia is a genus of fish of the family Synanceiidae, the Stonefishes, whose members are venomous, dangerous, and even fatal to humans. It is the most venomous fish in the world. They are found in the coastal regions of Indo-Pacific oceans.

Synanceia are primarily marine, though some species are known to live in rivers. Its species have potent neurotoxins secreted from glands at the base of their needle-like dorsal fin spines which stick up when disturbed or threatened. The vernacular name of the species, the stonefish, derives from being able to camouflage and transform itself to a grey and mottled color similar to the color of a stone. Divers have sometimes stepped on them, thinking they are stones. When these fish get stepped on, the pressure of how hard it is stepped on releases a certain amount of venom.
