Jeremy Rice changed the thumbnail image of "Mature female Carybdea sivickisi squashed like a Chinese lantern, a diurnal resting position. Feeding and mating occur at night.".
Yes, recently I’ve been reading article about this venomous creature and indeed box jellyfish are deadly and according to studies, the box jellyfish is known to be one of the deadliest creatures in the world, capable of killing an adult human being in just four minutes. By all accounts nobody, even a healthy adult, should have been able to survive the type of jellyfish sting she received. However, this marvelous girl did endure and is now doing well. The scaring no longer hurts her as much as itches, and this only 1 month following the event. I am pleased for this child and hope she has a bright wholesome and happy future.
