A. Symptoms of soft-bodied jellyfish stings (other than Box Jellyfish,
and Portugueuse Man-of-War):

1. Dull itching intense pain diffult to locate
2. Sudden onset of catatonic paralysis without collapse (resembles REM
sleep paralysis; marked by inability to move or localize)
3. Hot, blue (cyanosed), dry skin.
4. Clonic convulsions (marked by slow, deep, and long involuntary
movements and vocalizations)
5. Sudden multidirectional (affect one ear differently than the other;
loss of auditory orientation of direction; artifacts are different in
different directions that sound is perceives [falsely or not]),
auditory mis-perceptions (alteration, deafness, hallucinations)
6. Visual hallucinations differing depending on direction.


B. Symptoms of Portugueuse Man-of-War stings:

1. Sharp localized pain that diffuses
2. Sudden "flash" onset of intense flaccid paralysis (marked by
collapse; inability to move or vocalize)
3. Cold, pale, moist skin
4. Pain increases dramatically when subject mentally "tries" to move
(much like REM sleep paralysis)
5. Sudden, complete, equal bileratal deafness
6. Equal bilateral visual hallucinations

I've read somewhere by handling zoanthid's you can develop repertory
problems.
(I guess if you don't wash your hands ?)
Is there any truth to that ?

Maybe if you are extra sensitive, just like some people
are alergic to bee stings.

Zoanthids have a toxic body mucus. The danger exists if the toxin manages
to enter your bloodstream by way of ingestion or through cuts or abrasions.
Just use gloves, or wrap your hand in a simple plastic bag, when handling
them to play it safe.

The texts I've read say that the toxin may be dangerous enough to seriously
harm or kill people, but I don't think there have been any recorded
incidents of deaths involving humans.

I have heard a few rumors of dogs dying after eating zoos, but they may be
completely unfounded... how a dog got a hold of them is a good question.
