The National Sea Life Centre in Ireland is the new home for this Australian Blue-Ringed Octopus.
It grows no bigger than seven and a half inches, but don't be fooled by the size. Its bite can kill a person within ten minutes.
And there's not much help from the antidote department. Right now, there is no known anti-venom remedy to battle the octopus' deadly bite.
