WARNING: The video above contains content that some viewers may find extremely disturbing.

The gruesome footage in the video above is enough to make anyone’s stomach churn. It shows just how painful and bloody things can get if you ever get a stingray’s barb in your skin.

A stingray’s barb is so powerful that it can easy penetrate leather boots, a wetsuit, and even the side of a wooden boat. The intense pain of a stingray injury comes from a toxin secreted by the animal’s tail.
