    Medusas are beautiful to look at, but they can be just as dangerous. The Australian sea wasp (Chironex fleckeri) can lay claim to being the world's most poisonous creature.

    Every year, a number of people are known to die - often within minutes - from the cardio-toxic venom in its stings.

    The world of medusas is full of varieties, from tiny jellyfish of a few millimetres to giant ones of a couple of metres and from transparent medusas to very colourful ones.

    The film tells of medusa legends, of the strange life of these creatures and of the dangers they can pose.
