A video is currently going viral on Tiktok: It shows the American Kaylin Phillips who unknowingly holds one of the most poisonous animals in the world! A bite from the small octopus decorated with blue rings can kill an adult in a matter of minutes.
It is tricky that the animal’s poisonous bite does not hurt, so it is hardly noticeable. The poison spreads extremely quickly, paralyzes the body and leads to fatal respiratory failure.
Phillips, who made the video while on a study trip to Bali, thought the tiny sea creature was harmless. She recalls: “We took the little one out of the water and gave him around. We didn’t think anything of it. ” Only when the woman shares the video on social media is she informed by her followers. (une)
