Queensland, Australia


Australia has many amazing beaches. It is where the Great Barrier Reef is located, and the popular Gold Coast. This is what attracts many tourists to Queensland, Australia. But not many realize that Queensland is home to one of the deadliest sea creatures on the planet – the Box Jellyfish. Those who are not aware that the venom of this sea creature kills lots of unsuspecting swimmers and divers may think it to be harmless and even try to handle it. That is, if they even see this tiny killer. But the more fearsome one is the bigger species of box jellyfish, the Chironex fleckeri, which can reach 20cm along each side, and tentacles reaching 3 meters in length. But, the small, thumbnail-sized species killed more humans since it is not easily detectable. Either one of the species are on the top most dangerous creatures on the planet, so beware. It may prove to be your last swim.
