When a 19-year-old picked up a shell from a beach in Queensland, Australia, it never occurred to him that his life was in danger.
The young man, who claims to be a shell collector, thought the shell he had collected was empty and videotaped it, posting it to his Tik Tok account.
According to the video, he found that the shell was not empty, as it contained a living cone snail, a species that is on the list of the most venomous creatures on Earth!
“9 months ago, I almost died on the beach. I found a live snail-cone. This animal could kill me in less than 9 minutes. I thought it was empty. Please do not pick up snails-cones without gloves. This snail is on the list of the most deadly creatures on Earth and in fact it is in the 4th place “.
