Box Jelly

Box Jellies are still venomous when they are dead, so do not handle one of these!
If you are stung by ANY jellyfish, treat it with vinegar. This kills the stinging nematocysts.
Forget all the other folk remedies - they do not work. Do not rinse with fresh water until after the vinegar is used.
Turtles love to eat these, however, and seem to be imune to their toxins!
