There are many different types of dangers around the world. In Australia, you can be killed by anything, but the most feared threat is the animals. The most feared may be snakes, sharks, and insects, but these animals shouldn’t be your biggest worry. It should be the box jellyfish.

First of all, the box jellyfish lives in Australia. A lot of people don’t know about this animal, but they should. The box jellyfish is the most venomous and toxic animal recorded in the ocean. Their most deadly part is their tentacles. Imagine that you’re swimming in the ocean for fun, and then get tangled up in this three meter long animal, stinging you non stop with so much pain. You then die within three minutes. Yes, the box jellyfish’s sting can kill you in three or less minutes, with a constant pain. Not many people survive a box jellyfish sting. Another thing to be cautious about is that they cannot control their swimming path. The waves can push them around however they want, and the box jellyfish cannot resist, for its tentacles and way of moving are too weak to move through the waves. Also, they don’t really know how to, because they have no brain or heart. Lastly, they usually don’t die unless they are killed. This is because whenever jellyfish reach a certain age, they turn back into a ephyrae (a baby jellyfish) and this cycle happens for a very long time, usually until they are killed.

In conclusion, box jellyfish are the world’s deadliest marine animals, as far as we know of. It is super venomous and toxic.  It has no brain or heart, and they can live almost forever. The box jellyfish is definitely a force not to be reckoned with.
