I've just been paddling off of the Kempinski hotel beach in Aqaba, Jordan and got several painful nips! I couldn't see anything that might be doing it and an hour after leaving the water it doesn't hurt and there isn't a swelling so I'm sure they aren't venomous but does anyone know what creatures bite here?
It's something on the sea floor rather than swimming around. The depth is from around 2 to 3 feet (60 - 90 cm approx.) Visibility is clear to the sea bed so anything 1cm or bigger would be visible unless well camouflaged.
Nothing visible on skin at all. Just a very brief pain like an injection with a broad hypodermic needle.
