rabidraccoon Posted May 25, 2019 Share Posted May 25, 2019 I’m from South Carolina and I paddleboard here a lot. This morning I had a very nice paddle at low tide around the harbor and beaches here. I saw a ton of jellyfish and stingrays (there were also a ton of bait fish schooling and a feeding frenzy for dolphins, redfish and the pelicans). I figured the many Australians here probably have a lot of experience with jellyfish and stingrays so I’m wondering if I fell into the water and made contact with jellyfish, would they just instinctively sting on contact? We don’t have the super dangerous ones here like yall do but I guess it’d still be painful. When I walk in the shallows I notice many of the stingrays seem to have poor situational awareness and don’t notice I’m there until I’m very close so it wouldn’t be hard to imagine accidentally stepping on one ( hasn’t happened yet knock on wood). 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
