TikToker Picks Up And Licks “Jellyfish”,

Not Realizing It’s A Deadly Portuguese Man o’ War

Welcome back to the latest installment of “why did this internet user pick up a deadly animal?”. Last time, we saw a TikToker pick up one of the most venomous animals known to science as they handled the intensely dangerous blue-ringed octopus, a tiny and cute creature with enough venom to kill 26 adult humans within minutes.

Although it was dangerous beyond belief, this time we have something even wilder.

A popular TikTok user, alexa_reed2, who has almost 1 million followers, recently posted a video showing himself prodding, picking up, and even licking a strikingly colored blue “jellyfish” that lay on the beach.

“Look guys, a jellyfish is still here,” he states in the short clip.

“I’m going to pick it up. This is how it looks like – yes, it is a jellyfish, look how big it is. It’s still moving! I’m going to lick it.”
