John Paul Lennon and Ross Sanders caught the octopus in Bandarberg, Queensland, on the 12th, Australian News Network reported on the 15th. Lennon stretched out his arm. Sanders held the octopus above Lennons arm and then placed it on Lennons arm. They played with the octopus for about half a minute, took pictures and videos, and then put the octopus back into the sea. Lennon said they were asking people if the octopus was dangerous, but no one reminded them. They went home to watch videos for several friends. A friend recognized that it wasnt an ordinary octopus and realized how ignorant and lucky he was. According to Australian News Network, a blue-ringed octopus has enough toxin to kill 26 adults, and a little toxin like the round head of a pin can be fatal. Saunders wrote in the social media on the evening of the 14th: Thank goodness, no one was hurt. We can laugh about how close we are to death and how foolish we are. Dont play with Australian wildlife.
