Meet the most dangerous creature on the planet.
The Irukandji Jellyfish A.K.A. The Invisible Jellyfish.
Look at the picture above, and tell me if you’d be able to see this creature underwater?
For goodness sake, it looks like water itself!
Well, guess what?
This thing produces venom that is 100x more potent than a cobra and it’s 1000x more venomous than everybody’s worst nightmare: The Mighty Tarantula!
They inhabit the waters of Northern Australia and are responsible for some deaths and many injuries.
The sting itself is quite painless, and so it may go unnoticed, but that’s the problem!
Because in about 15–20 mins after, symptoms like severe muscle cramps, a burning sensation in skin and face, and abnormal increase in heart rate, begin to manifest. And at that point, it might be too late.
One victim described it as a “moment of impending doom”. Luckily for him, they were able to extract the venom just in time.
But what’s scary is that what ought to be a fun day at the beach, turned out to be a nightmare for many.
And for some, a slow, painful death and they couldn’t even see it coming!
So a thing that looks like water and lives in water happens to be one of the most venomous creature on the planet.
God, you really do have a cruel sense of humour.
