    I watched a show on T.V. about these guys one time. they are very tiny. The guy was catching them and making them exscreat their poison for some kind of study. He was on the great big rock at low tide. The little guy live in the pools of water that stay on the rock when the tide goes down. The scary thig...there were all kinds of tourist just walking around the beach and climbing the rocks. How easy would it be to get bitten/stung (whatever it is they do!) I guess you really need to research the local wildlife before you go to one of these tropical places!

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    wow, that's pretty incredible that a little animal like that can pack such a punch (like the poisen dart frogs). My brother lives in Malta and says he see's little octopus in the lagoons when they go snorkelling. I better tell him to make sure he knows all he can before he touches any of them...even though these ones are said to live in Australia. He already says he saw a member of the scorpion fish family and tried to touch it not realizing it's venomous. :doh!!:

    Blue Rings are on the wholesale list all the time. Sadly, most LFSs can get them.
