Hot weather, jellyfish weather, we need to take precautions, we can accidentally step on them on the beach, especially when we go fishing at night, as many get stuck in the sand.

These are the most common species in the Mediterranean:

1 – Velella velella, medusa velero.
2 – Rhizostoma pulmo, medusa aguamala.
3 – Chrysoara hysoscella, medusa acalefo.
4 – Cotylorhiza tuberculata, medusa huevo frito.
5 – Physalia physalis medusa carabela portuguesa.
6 – Carybdea marsupiales, medusa avispa de mar.

All stingers marked in red are the most dangerous, those marked in green are medium venom, and those marked in yellow are weak venom. In case you may get hives with some of them, the recommendations are clear, NEVER rub the affected area, apply ice, but not directly, wrapped in cloth, and wet the area with 50% baking soda solution and seawater.

The traditionally used antidote, dousing with ammonia, has proven counterproductive. If symptoms worsen, go to the emergency room.

There are many different types of jellyfish, some of which are more dangerous than others. The most dangerous jellyfish is the box jellyfish, which can be found in coastal waters throughout the world. These jellyfish have a potent sting that can cause extreme pain, swelling, and even death.

Other dangerous jellyfish include the Portuguese Man-of-War, the stinging nettle, and the Irukandji Jellyfish. So if you’re ever swimming in the ocean and come into contact with a jellyfish, it’s best to get out of the water as quickly as possible and seek medical attention.

There are a number of dangerous jellyfish species, including the box jellyfish and the Portuguese man-of-war. These jellyfish can deliver a painful sting that can sometimes be fatal. Other dangerous jellyfish include the bluebottle and the lion’s mane jellyfish.

These jellyfish can also deliver a painful sting, but they are not usually fatal. However, they can still cause serious illness and even death in some cases. It is important to be aware of these dangerous Jellyfish species and to avoid them if possible.

There are dozens of types of jellyfish, and many of them are capable of delivering a painful sting. However, only a handful of jellyfish species are truly dangerous to humans. The most notorious of these is the box jellyfish, which is found in tropical waters around the world. Box jellyfish are relatively small, but their sting is incredibly powerful and can be fatal. Fortunately, there are only a handful of recorded fatalities from box jellyfish stings each year.

Other potentially dangerous jellyfish include the lion’s mane jellyfish (found in cold waters off the coast of North America and Europe), the Irukandji jellyfish (found in Australia), and the sea wasp (found in Indo-Pacific waters). These jellyfish can all deliver a painful sting, but they are not usually fatal. However, they can still cause serious illness and even death in some cases. It is important to be aware of these dangerous Jellyfish species and to avoid them if possible.

There are many types of jellyfish, some of which are dangerous to humans. The most dangerous types of jellyfish include the box jellyfish, the Irukandji jellyfish, and the Portuguese Man-of-War. These species can cause serious harm or even death if they come into contact with a human.

Other less dangerous types of jellyfish can still deliver a painful sting that can last for quite some time. So it’s always best to be cautious around any type of jellyfish, even if they don’t appear to be particularly harmful.
