no no ramio the skalm is harmless. and so is the zundun. The only 2 which are poisonous from their family are the tracna and the sawt.

Emic if you take any pics of the rabbit fish I have a contact with a marine biologist in the university and would like some photos and some info. Area where you saw the rabbitfish, depth etc. He offered to give us any useful info on species we find new for maltese waters if we show him pics.

Give him my mobile and i can talk to him. I can go and catch one so that can study on it.

As far as I know there is no such fish called zundun. I think what you mean is Zondu, http://maltafishingforum.com/talk/index.php?topic=610.270 which is also poisonous.

The shoulder spines can inflict, painful stings. Usually found buried in the sand or mud.
