If accidentally trodden on or picked up, this creature inflicts a fairly painless bite. [1] Unfortunately, its toxin is highly lethal and fast acting. This is especial true of the South West coast of Fuerteventura, where strong currents make swimming risky. Each taste bud is about 50 nanometers (50 billionths of a meter, or 164 billionths of a foot) wide, and the bigger the fish is, the more taste buds it has.

"As temperature rises, the zooplankton start to grow faster than the phytoplankton," O'Connor explains. "The zooplankton are more abundant and faster-growing, and are able to eat all the phytoplankton in warmer water.
