Great Barrier Reef Animals

BOX JELLYFISH

We can’t have a list highlighting the 10 coolest animals of the Great Barrier Reef without discussing the animal often called “the most poisonous animal in the world” also known as the Box Jellyfish.

Unlike true jellyfish that just float around waiting for food to come to them, the Box Jellyfish will actively hunt their meals. Let’s just hope you are not on the menu during your dive.

Diver Tip:

The tentacles of the Box Jellyfish are still capable of stinging even if they are not attached to the animal or if the jelly is dead, so please be careful.
