Dangerous creatures

A few of the animals that live in rockpools are deadly. Some of the animals can hurt people. People will only be hurt if they handle these creatures. 

The blue-ringed octopus is deadly. They only show their blue rings when they are scared, so it is best never to handle an octopus. Pretty cone shells can inject a painful poison. Some of the sea jellies can also injure people.
