"The rings of a southern blue-ringed octopus are particularly vivid when an individual is threatened or agitated. In addition to the bright blue rings, these octopuses are famous for having extremely potent venom that can be strong enough to kill a person... As they live in very shallow waters, they may be vulnerable to changes resulting from coastal development or other human activities." -Oceana
