    there has been a notice in the newspapers that jelly fish are being washed up on the south shorelines, DO NOT TOUCH them as they are extremely poisonouse and can kill in a matter of minuets. so please keep an eye on your dogs and children if you go down the beach

    Killing in a matter of mins is a bit over the top  ::) The Portuguese Man O’ War does give one hell of a sting (been there done that) but there are so far only a dozen or so along the south coast, unless you have the rest round the I of W.
    When I lived in Jamacia they were a common sight, do you know they can still sting when they are dead ugly looking things that they are

    they are harmless foxy…

    i love them they fascinate me

    the PMoW is actually not a true jelly fish…it is a colony of lots of individual animals living symbiotically…it is the individuals reaction to the toxins that make them potentially dangerous…so can cause a heart attack in one person and just a sore red itch in another…the worse bit is the scabs when they start to heal…burns like hell..if you get stung get someone to pee on it…. 😀

    i remember my sister in law telling the story of when she got stung in gibralter and brother whipped it out and pee’d on her belly….to the consternation of the sunbathers  ;D
