Wow talk about being rubbed raw....That would need a little more than some gold bond to cure!!!



50 years ago we would just rub some dirt on it and carry on...


50 years ago birth control was simply called pulling out....

That looks like something out of a VFX microscope scene of a horror movie like the Andromeda strain or Tremors.

When my daughter told me about this story today, I said immediately "Did it happen in the Pacific?"
I think a few here think the same, but my idea diverges from mutation due to Fukushima; I think these are creatures who needed to change habitat due to Fukushima. We might see more news species in the coming years because of that.

The article said the beach is popular and people swim there everyday. I wonder why more people aren't being bitten. What about that boy is different than other people who swim there and why are these creatures confined to just one incident at one location? Interesting post, creeps me out, gonna be on high alert the next time I'm in any body of water. Haha.

So. . .

In the nation of Nope-istan, someone went to Nope Beach and was bitten by hundreds of tiny Nope-isms.



This is me running away from the images. . . .

Being and old codg I would say education. In the old days, we saw what we saw knew what we knew or were told. Today we look things up, sand fleas for instance we know carry parasites. EXAMPLE: Sand flies infect U.S. forces with parasite that leaves them with 'Baghdad Boil'
www.washingtonpost.com...
Google sand fleas carry....there are numerous horrors.

Smart people get treated for black legged tick bite and so on.

Looks like pretty deep gashes

You forgot the eradication plan.



Come on, Australia, you keep handing the world reasons on a silver platter for why to never GO to Australia.

I was so tempted to say fake, but as he has been to 2 hospitals, so i guess not. But thats a lot of blood on his right leg for those little critters to cause in such a short space of time, looks more like piranhas have had leg of man for dinner.

As no-one had this happen to them, could it have been 2 stage process? Could a jelly fish (or other creature) have caused the initial cuts and then these critters moved in after?

Would also have liked to have seen photos of the cleaned up wound, it would of helped.

I'd say those are real. My parents bought an old farmhouse in France - before it was bought by Parisians as a holiday home, it had been used by a farmer who used to take his livestock indoors every winter. When we first moved in all the old bedframes had large plastic sheets underneath them. When I stayed there I'd get flea-bites. They would start as tiny pin-pricks, get red, inflame, then itch like hell, break open and just ooze blood. The last two would just repeat until there was deep hole. All due to fleas. Worst time, my foot would swell up, feel super hot, and when I lifted up the blankets, there were 20+ fleas on my foot with blood all over the blankets. Had to clean the rooms up by digging out all the dust from between the floorboard cracks.

Spent my childhood swimming in the area and have never seen anything like this. Just unlucky I guess. My money is on him standing very close to dead marine life being consumed by the critters and he got there just in time for dessert.


Museum marine scientist Dr Genefor  Walker-Smith has examined specimens collected by Sam's father, Jarrod Kanizay – using bites of meat as lures – at Brighton on Sunday night, and said the creatures were sea fleas, not sea lice as first thought. Sea fleas are scavenging amphipod crustaceans belonging to the lysianassid group. The bad news is that they're found all over Port Phillip Bay and all over the world.

I have lived on coastal areas of AU most of my life and I've never seen anything like this. I'm pretty sure I'd be more careful of putting my legs in the water if I knew they could be eaten alive. Sand fleas just leave itchy spots like normal fleas, they don't eat the flesh off of you. Looks to me like either some sort of new species or he was attacked by something else without realizing it. Notice the part of the article which states:

"Both at Sandringham Hospital and also Dandenong Hospital, no one had seen anything like this before and they're all pretty fascinated by it."

I have to admit, my first thought was a surfacing of an undiscovered species like in "Surface".

I know it is an old series.
