The Irukandji Jellyfish has one of the most painful venomous bites of any creature and, as if that WASN’T ENOUGH, victims also experience an IMPENDING SENSE OF DOOM – they feel like they are going to die! But there are lots of different jellyfish in Australia so Jack visits the Lifeguard Hoppo from the Bondi Beach Lifesavers (as seen in the TV show Bondi Rescue!) to find out how to tell them apart, which one’s could be deadly, and which one’s could in fact just cause a mild sting…
Australia’s lifeguards are known all over the world for keeping Australian’s safe from the deadly creatures living in the waters. Always be careful when swimming in the sea; If in Australia, make sure to swim between the red and yellow flags; and do not swim in areas sign-posted as dangerous.
Jack Randall has extensive experience handling and studying wild animals. Where filming with dangerous animals Made in the Wild works with scientists and wildlife institutions. Do not attempt to handle wild animals without appropriate training and permits.
Venom Australia is a mission to spot 20 venomous creatures out in the wild. Along the way we meet with scientists, experts and conservationists to find out everything there is to know about Venom.
