Blue-ringed octopuses are among the world’s most venomous marine animals, containing enough venom to kill 26 adult humans in minutes.

Due to their size, octopus bites are small and often painless, but their venom can cause respiratory arrest, heart failure, paralysis, blindness, and eventually death from suffocation.

Octopuses are relatively docile, only showing their bright blue rings and becoming dangerous to humans when threatened.
