Venomous Blue-Ringed Octopus: The world’s most poisonous octopus bitten the woman twice, then what happened surprised even the scientist

Venomous Blue-Ringed Octopus: A woman in Australia was bitten several times by a poisonous blue-ringed octopus. It is included in the world’s most poisonous animal. Even after being bitten several times by the poisonous octopus, there was no effect on the woman. She survived.

On March 16, a woman found a shell while swimming at a beach in New South Wales, Australia, reports NSW Ambulance. Inside the shell was a blue colored octopus. The blue colored octopus bit the woman twice on her stomach. After this, the woman developed abdominal pain, after which the team of paramedics took her to the hospital for treatment.

26 people died in one minute
The team of paramedics kept the woman under observation in the hospital. The place where the octopus bitten the woman was soaked with cold water. On this, Christian Holmes said in a statement on Facebook that the news related to the bite of blue-ringed octopus was rare for us, because it is very poisonous. Their poison is 1,000 times more potent than cyanide. One drop of their poison has the ability to kill 26 people in a minute. Blue-ringed octopuses are only 12 to 20 cm (5 to 8 in). 

Smaller blue-ringed octopuses are less aggressive
The blue-ringed octopus produces a potent neurotoxin in the body after a bite. It prevents the neuron signal from going from one place to another in the body, due to which the muscles become numb. There is a problem in seeing the victim. Apart from this, there is a feeling of difficulty in breathing. Although smaller cephalopods, the blue-ringed octopus is not as aggressive. They only bite to protect themselves.
