      no, you wouldnt because even the most cruel poisonous monsters have their enemies too.
      i remember we used to collect crown of thorns (your 1st pic) after their invasion in 1999... they appeared out of the blue and like a raging epidemic, they swept off the entire coral population of huge coral reef systems. after carefully removing them from coral blocks (with gloves and knives, and in one piece, as just a single torn off arm could have survived and developed into a new seastar) we brought them to an island where tons of them were burned. dangerous beauty... found it always fascinating why nature has made these devastating creatures so pretty. very good underwater pictures... the backscatters (not again;) appear like an underwater star canape.

      See now, how superficial Marx was: he never considered that the little fish would be poisonous for the big fish! Probably his whole theory would have fallen to its face if he refined his theories...

      Now, on the other hand, if you are the Big Fish, (or otherwise act as a parfadigm of Capitalist Competition, if you remember Marx), there is nothing to fear, you will eat all the little fish...
