    Most of the things in the ocean will either sting or bite. Unless you have special knowledge, it is best to leave everything alone.

    i agree with you... unless you know how to handle the creature don't bother it....sting and bite... but you forgot the shocking part... some can zap you...

    Thank god i'm a cold water diver, nothing up here that stings... badly anyways. We do have orcas though, probably not a good idea to go about molesting those.

    Nice to see so much talk about a worm for once! Just for the record, I do think it's Hermodice carunculata, the bearded fireworm.
    Cheerio!

    I feel silly to say this...I think we have those....I never knew they were poisonous. The NAME did not even tip me off. I can be very dense. I can see myself nudging one into position for a macro shot....hahaha.

    hmmm, there is this yappy Bison Frise next door that I want to suffer an early demise. Could I leave this little thing on the sidewalk for his am stroll? I have been trying to figure out the best way to do this dog in for a few years now...it is the thing that keeps me going.
