Blue Ringed Octopus is quite small, only about the size of a golf ball. But this beautiful little creature has enough venom that can kill 26 full grown adults. Unfortunately, no antidote is available. Its bite can kill a person within minutes as they will be completely paralyzed and unable to breathe. After the bite, its victims will maintain their consciousness for a few hours to let the venom get neutralized by their body. Its victim can be saved if artificial respiration is continued.
