A Tourist Holding One of the Most Venomous Sea Creatures in the World

Let's call this a Public Service Announcement.  A video is making the rounds of a tourist on a beach in Australia holding a blue-ringed octopus.

Sure, it's cute, but it can KILL YOU.  It carries enough venom to kill 26 adult humans within minutes . . . and there is no anti-venom.  According to a report, the tourist wasn't bitten.
