TikToker Licks ‘Jellyfish’ He Found On The Beach, Unaware It Can Kill Humans!

"It's still moving, oh my god, I'm going to lick it."

  • TikToker Alexa_reed2 recently went viral after posting a video of himself playing with a “jellyfish” he found on the beach.
  • Netizens later pointed out that the creature is actually a Portuguese Man O’ War – which is potentially deadly.
  • Apparently, the creature is “responsible for up to 10,000 stings a year in Australia alone,” another TikTok user explained.

One guy from TikTok recently posted about a discovery he made on the beach. In his video, we see Alexa_reed2 filming himself picking up, playing with, and even licking a slimy blue creature.

Unknown to him, it can actually kill humans.

“Look guys, a jellyfish is still here”, TikToker Alexa_reed2 said on his video. “I’m going to pick it up.”

He can later be seen pinching the creature and commenting:

“This is how it looks like. Yes, it’s a jellyfish, look how big it is. And it’s still moving, oh my god, I’m going to lick it.”

The young man was obviously unaware that no, it really wasn’t a jellyfish but a Portuguese Man O’ War, which is also known as the “floating terror.”

You can watch the video here:

It didn’t take long before netizens on TikTok started pointing out the fact.

“This is why women live longer than men, s*** like this,” Mndiaye_9 warned. “That is not a jellyfish, it’s a Portuguese Man O’ War, also known as the bluebottle, also known as the floating terror. It’s a species of siphonophore armed with millions of explosive stinging cells powerful enough to make Nemo an orphan and occasionally turn a person into past tense.”

The TikToker also added:

“This Man O’ War is responsible for up to 10,000 stings a year in Australia alone and the venom can cause excruciating pain for up to three days, leaving a nasty, whip-like welt as a souvenir. “But honestly, you’re lucky if that’s all you get because the venom can trigger an allergic-like reaction that results in throat-swelling, heart issues and difficulty breathing, as you suffocate, possibly to death.”

“And fun fact, not only can they write your obituary days, even tentacles that have been separated from its body contain enough venom to incapacitate you,” continued Mndiaye_9. “Getting stung by a Man O’ War is nowhere near a death sentence. Most of the time if treated quickly, it’s very survivable. But even though being put in a coffin by one is rare, the agonizing pain that comes with it might make you wish it wasn’t.”
