RF2GGWACX–Wasp stings on skin after one day, red inflammation marks caused by wasp bite
RFPGGB66–The brightly coloured spines of this fire urchin (Astropyga radiata: diameter 20 cms.) are composed of numerous sacs, each of which contains powerful toxins. The animal's striking appearance represents a warning that any attempt to molest it will result in very painful - and possibly lethal - stings. Feeding on algae and seaweed, it moves by means of hundreds of hydraulically-operated tube feet. It can also use its longer plain brown spines as stilts to climb over rocks and small objects. The yellow organism at the right of the picture is a sponge. Photographed near Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia.

RFM9F99A–Toxic leather sea urchins (Asthenosoma marisrubri: 20 cms.) are found in the Indo-Pacific region. It was not until 1998 that the species was classified as distinct, the work in that respect having been carried out in the northern Red Sea - hence the specific 'marisrubri'. As with all regular sea urchins, it has a pentagonal structure, which is clearly visible in the photograph. The animal's armour plating is covered in spines, each of which carries a sack of a powerful toxin. Stings can be excruciatingly painful! It lives on coral reefs, feeding mainly on algae and detritus. Egyptian Red Sea.
