Box jellyfish (class Cubozoa) are cnidarian invertebrates distinguished by their cube-shaped medusae. Box jellyfish are known for the extremely potent venom produced by some species: Chironex fleckeri, Carukia barnesi and Malo kingi are among the most venomous creatures in the world. Stings from these and a few other species in the class are extremely painful and sometimes fatal to humans.

The poison would directly attack the heart, nervous system, and skin cells. Worse, box jellyfish venom so painful that the people affected will experience shock, heart attack or drowned before he could get out of the water.

Those who survived the attack box jellyfish will experience pain weeks after the contact with him. In fact, humans do not have a chance of surviving if the poison has spread through the blood vessels.

According to the study, the vinegar contains acetic acid that can paralyze jellyfish's nematocysts that have not entered into the bloodstream (though this does not relieve pain).

Box jellyfish are extremely poisonous to live in the waters around Asia and Australia. *** [JAM | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 27092012]
