Have you made contact with a portuguese man-of-war?

If you would like to share your story on your encounter with portuguese men-of-war and you have photographs, I would love to hear from you. Keep in mind, the strike area does not have to be large. For example, if your contact area was small, but your arm or hand swelled up to significant size, this is worth reporting. The venmon from this sea creature affects everyone differently. It is important to know it can be life threating based on allergic reaction as well as the size of the area effected.

Remember, the purpose of the site is public awareness and to educate the public on the marvels of the portuguese man-of-war and the dangers of this sea creature too.
