I was looking at the mimic octo and thought they were great. Do they have the strong venom like others have, and how dangerous is it?

just a question, but are they really poisonous, we know they subdue their prey with either jaw or toxin, but is this a more venomous specie>

no one is completely certain if they have toxin that would impact humans. All (or at least most) octos have toxin that effects crustaceans and other invertebrates. There was a TV show that suggested that mimics aren't toxic, but wunderpus might be, but I wouldn't rely on that.
