On our trip to the beach the other day, another interesting creature we came across was the Man O War. These things can be dangerous if you get too close to them or step on their tentacles. They can cause swelling, stinging, burning, itching and in some people severe allergic reactions.
Some can have tentacles that are several inches long.
If you do step on one of these, wash the area with salt water or fresh water quickly.
If the pain continues you can apply heat or cold whichever works better.
Try to stay away from these as some people are severely allergic to them. They can cause difficulty breathing and can cause large welts.
