The blue-ringed octopus, despite its small size, carries enough venom to kill 26 adult humans within minutes. Their bites are tiny and often painless, with many victims not realizing they have been envenomated until respiratory depression and paralysis start to set in. No blue-ringed octopus antivenom is available yet, making it one of the deadliest reef inhabitants in the ocean.

I was sort of joking, but octopus when cooked correctly is a tasty thing. There are several ways to cook it. It's common all along the Mediterranean along with being in Asian cuisines.
Someday, I am going to take up the challenge and pick one up at my local fish counter and try cooking it. The main challenge is that it is really easy to overcook, like squid only worse.

Wow! Great thread! I had to chuckle though when I saw it was in the 'pet' forum. LOL
I posted it in the General Chat forum. A mod moved it!
