Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

The venom in the nettle cells of the portuguese man o war is closely related to that of a cobra. Got stung by one while diving a fewyears ago and it put the breaks on me for 3 days. But they still make for nice pictures on a calm day. By the way, those tentacles get up tp 40 feet long so take care when ye go skinny dipping with them about.

Have to make a correction then... the similar ones we saw in the Pacific were small... only a few inches across.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

The actual floating part is only a few inches usually well under a foot long but if you look underneath it there are looong strings hanging down into the water that it uses to catch its pray.
