Blue Bottles


It is one of the most unpleasant experiences you can have. I have experienced been stung by these Blue Bottles twice in my lifetime on the Durban Beach front (South Africa). The worst part is that they re able to sting even when lying dead on the beach.

"Blue Bottles: are also known as Portuguese Man (or Men) O’ War. Their scientific name is Physalia physalis. Blue Bottles are dangerous organisms. Their tentacles are able to deliver painful stings to swimmers."
