Blue-ringed Octopus Warning, Bribie

By Tanayah Wakefield

Locals and visitors to Bribie Island are being warned to keep an eye out for dangerous blue-ringed octopus, after one was found last week.

The venomous marine creature was discovered by regular Bribie visitor Tim Shipstone.

“At first I thought it was a good live bait for a flatty for my Mum,” Tim explains.

“But he wouldn’t let go until he was in my bait bucket, and then the rings all lit up with that incredible cerulean blue.

“I fish that spot a bit when I’m visiting, and kids are often stomping through the sea grass and around the coffee rock ledge at low tide.”
