Although most people don’t think about it very much, the world is a dangerous place. Of course there is crime; there is disease. There are accidents and natural disasters – all bad – right? Yes! Of course – but because many of us now-a-days live in urban centers, we have forgotten how lethal the world can be. Once you step outside your front door and venture into woods, lakes, oceans or mountains – there’s a good chance you’ll have at least one creature you’ll have to watch out for, or suffer the consequences. Many animals will only attack when provoked, while others are on a one-man mission to bite you, infect you and generally ruin your life. So be careful out there!
Found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, the Blue-Ringed octopus is amongst the most venomous creatures in the deep blue sea. So if the blue-ringed octopus feels under attack, they will strike and essentially asphyxiate the victim with their venom – as it paralyzes respiratory muscles.
