  1. The Irukandji jellyfish (Carukia barnesi and Malo kingi) are small and extremely venomous jellyfish that are found mostly near Australia..You can't eat it 'cause it will cause you death

  2. Steve says:

    He died in 2006 after being fatally pierced in the chest by a stingray barb.

  3. Rav says:

    It must be the the type of jellyfish that killed Steve Irwin. Surely?

  4. Cibbuano says:

    Hmmm, that makes me want to read the big-bust models page…
