Australian box jellyfish can cause deadly cardiac arrest within minutes by punching holes in red blood cells and causing potassium to leak out of them, hawaiian researchers for many years scientists have been trying to pin down how the box jellyfish's venom works so fast and to find effective treatments. If dissecting toads in biology class made you squeamish, it's probably best to look away now but if you're among the not-so-faint of heart, we're getting up close and personal with one of the world's deadliest animals to find out what its venom does to a beating heart.
However, no detailed studies have been performed of the effect of temperature and exposure time on box jellyfish venoms such information may have clinical implications for treating box jellyfish envenoming we investigated the effect of exposing extracted c fleckeri venom to a range of temperatures for.
