Sublingual gland v A lionfish (pterois)
The sublingual gland is best known for is predominantly mucus secretion and its occasional serous demilunes.
The lionfish is best known for its unique spiny venomous fin rays that will inject you with evil toxin and lower your blood pressure until you cease to exist (in severe instances).
You would think the two would have little in common…
But, when prepared carefully, the lionfish can be devoured as a deliciously risky snack that is washed down the esophagus by the secretions of the very gland that mimics it!!!
This is not a red herring. Serously. I’m not codding. I wouldn’t bream of spit. Amylasey man and wouldn’t put the effort into lion.
