I know they have been known to eat them off a spear....but that pic looks photoshopped.
I don't care WHAT kind of predator you are or how bad a$$ you are....nothing gets off Without injury when ingesting those spines. Those spines are sharper than hypodermic needles....and BIGGER. They will go right through needle proof gloves!
Hate to think of what they would do to a mouth or throat.....or any of the softer parts after that!

Old pic from when divers were trying to train sharks to eat lions. They started out feeding them dead lions. And the sharks loved it. But then sharks became aggressive and a few divers got bite and the project ended. Reef sharks have been known to eat them but from what I saw. Only dead ones. They aren't attacking and they aren't hunting them as far as I know. To dangerous lions just need to be in the commercial market. End of story. Not to eradicate buy to control. I honestly believe eradication is impossible but keeping them in check will help. Could be the most sustainable fish in our waters due to high rate of breeding. Btw. I sold out of lions tonight,how about you?? Thought so. Their is a market, I have proven it.
