    Jellyfish inject toxins when they sting. The severity of the toxin depends on the species and size of jellyfish, plus of course how many individual stings you receive. A stingray "sting" is just a stab wound. Not usually serious, if you treat the wound to prevent infection, as you would any other wound.

    Either one is going to ruin your day. Stingray are easy to avoid learning the stingray shuffle, big ones are not offenßive, just don't go grabbing them over the top.

    Cayman island tours, you can swim with them, even pet and kiss them.

    Depends on if you prefer a burning red rash or a poison barb shoved through your foot. I don't like things that stab me.

    if a stingray should happen to hit you in the heart it's going to kill you just like it did the crocodile hunter but if it hits you in the foot it's going to be very painful but not likely going to kill you. Are some jellyfish is like the box jellyfish that will kill you. Some jellyfishes are only painful.

    They both hurt, but jellyfish only hurt - they do not kill you.
