It’s common knowledge by now that Australia is the world’s largest island and death trap. One fisherman from Perth in Western Australia has just done his bit to further back up those claims.

Steve Hart — a fisherman and co-owner of Western Angler magazine — posted on his Facebook on Wednesday, Dec. 2, that he had an encounter with a blue-ringed octopus while crayfishing.
