Box jellyfish: Australian researchers find antidote for world's most venomous creature
An antidote has been discovered for the world’s most venomous creature, the Australian box jellyfish.
Researchers at the University of Sydney have found an antidote for the sting of the jellyfish – which carries enough venom to kill more than 60 people.
A single sting from the creature will cause excruciating pain and skin necrosis and, if the dose of venom is large enough, cardiac arrest and death within just minutes.
