1. Blue-Ringed Octopus

A tiny and beautiful octopus that looks rather stunning, it is quite often missed as it hides in amongst coral reefs. With a painless bite that can go unnoticed, within five or ten minutes they can induce paresthesias, numbness, muscular weakness and a difficulty breathing and swallowing.

There is no known antidote to these bites although they haven't actually killed that many people. The best thing is just to avoid them and wait it out if you do receive a bite.
