Don't think the leathers are toxic.

Also stonefish are toxic and I don't think there is nothing for the pain ether. You have to endure the worst pain ever for 24 straight while the doctors look at you and say they can do anything.

There are many toxic creatures that can cause harm. Shouldn't be taken too lightly. Foxfaces have venemous spines (so don't pick them up!). They're cowards though. Rarely use their spines unless they feel they must.

Anemones can sting/leave a rash. Elegance can too I believe.

Fireworm have bristles that hurt a lot if you happen to touch one

Cucumbers, nudibranchs, sea apples, etc can release a toxin when stressed/die

There are some more, but those are the ones off the top of my head.

Don't get intimidated though! You won't die Be safe and respectful of these fragile creatures. Be aware of the risks. Now that's being responsible.

Zoanthids are poisonous so unless you cut them open and drink the water you won't be affected. Anemones and lion fish are venomous. Venom is injected by stinging or biting. Hope this helps.
