In brief: Poison

Most poisionous known fo far are the box jelly fish.
Major box jelly fish can casue death from cardiorepiratory arrest. They do cause intractable pain but usually the effects of the poision on the heart and circulatory systems is what kills people depending on the amount of envenomation.( injected venom by the jelly fish).
