Doc Bones...I think the warm water one is...as hot as the skin can tolerate. Not just warm for them to make Kopi Tongkat Ali.

Since you guys brought up the issue of sea venomous animals, I will never touch on these animals in the open sea.

1) Blue ringed otopus, Hapalochlaena maculosa is one of the top list in the venomous animals in the sea. Moreover, their sting is potential deadly! [highlight]No anti-venom available currently[/highlight].

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue-ringed_octopus

2) Cone shell, Conus geographus is exceptionally dangeorous. The sting release is kind of neorotoxin and so far, [highlight]no anti-venom available currently[/highlight].
