Boy infected by octopus

Boy infected by common octopus
 
 
The common octopus is not the placid creature we have been led to believe, warn experts, who report an unprecedented case of an octopus inflicting an infected bite on a child.
The bite, which did not heal and had to be removed, occurred while the nine-year-old boy was snorkelling with his uncle in Croatia.

He apparently provoked the normally peacefulOctopus vulgaris, which squirted its ink and bit him on the arm before swimming away.

The bite did not hurt or bleed at the time, but two days later a small red inflamed wound developed, with a haemorrhagic nodus in the centre.
