Cute, but deadly

I was poking around this page of information about various Extremely Toxic Australian creatures and what to do if you are bitten/stung by one. The particular one that caught my attention is of course the Blue-Ringed Octopus, cute li'l HARBINGER OF DEATH.

The very scariest sentence on the page, much scarier than "Death may occur in as little as thirty minutes" or "There is no antivenom available," is: Collapse )

Edited to add: Oh, wow, check out the kids page.
