Are they any particularly dangerous insects, animals or marine life that I should be concerned about during my visit to Sangat?

We have the usual varieties of stinging insects, poisonous aquatic species and jelly fish which are endemic to this region but – in our opinion – none are particularly aggressive or fatal.

An obvious, common sense approach to this concern would be to avoid touching any land or marine-based animal you are not familiar with and to always be cautious and aware of your surroundings when venturing into the water while barefoot.
