From sneaky fish to spitting cobras, here are 8 animals with enough poison and venom to destroy you. 8. Stonefish The most poisonous fish in the world, the Stonefish is infamous for just how deadly it is, and how innocuous it can seem from a distance. This actually makes the Stonefish even deadlier in some ways, as they like to blend into the stones and sands of the waters they inhabit, and because of this, they can be hard to see. There have been many cases of a person accidentally stepping on a Stonefish, and the result of the accident is death.That’s because the Stonefish has 13 spines on its back, and that’s what injects the very potent poison into the body of the person in question. The only good news is that though it will be extremely painful, it is treatable without the antivenom (though it’s recommended obviously that you get it immediately after a sting happens). It’s been found that drenching the stung area with hot water can dissolve the venom inside of you. The other reason that the Stonefish are so feared is that they don’t live in the depths of the ocean, they actually prefer very shallow waters, thus making them very likely to be found by people on beaches or those who take light dives into shallow areas. 7. Poison Dart Frog Frogs themselves aren’t known to be poisonous, but the few exceptions, like the Poison Dart Frog, are the ones you should fear the most. On the surface, the Poison Dart Frog looks like just another frog, albeit one that is golden yellow. Which is actually another name for it, the Golden Poison Frog (although some have been known to have bright blue bodies for the record, as well as other colors based on location and raising).Regardless of the name, the frog was originally found in Colombia, and quickly made a name for itself. This species of frog secretes numerous kinds of poison via its skin. Including one of the most dangerous toxins of all, Tetrodotoxin. What might surprise you though, is that while humans may not recognize the Poison Dart Frog on sight, its predators most certainly do. The frogs actually “color” their body to be a warning sign to predators looking for a meal.The frog, and its poison, soon became very famous in the regions it resides in, to the extent that tribes realized the potency of the poison that the frogs had, and would use the toxins on blow dart guns for hunting and other activities. Hence the name “Poison Dart Frog”, because that’s what the poison would be used on. It’s said that there is enough poison in a Poison Dart Frog to kill 20,000 mice. 6. Brazilian Wandering Spider The Brazilian Wandering Spider is a species that anyone going through the area of Central or South America should be aware of.Not the least of which is because they’ve very aggressive spiders, and they don’t like humans very much. In fact, they’re one of the few spider species that can not only cause great pain to humans, but their bites can be lethal in certain concentrations, as well as extremely painful and debilitating. Ironically, these spiders don’t act like regular spiders in that they actually hide out during the day and go wander around the forests they reside in at night. Which makes it so that you’ll likely not see them coming. As for their venom, it can cause extreme pain, salivation, irregular heart rate, paralysis and more. And if left untreated, it can definitely lead to death. The reason for this is the potency of the venom, which is said to rival that of very venomous snakes. And now for number 5, but first be sure to subscribe to World List if you haven’t already. 5. Blue-Ringed Octopus There are many terrors in the ocean waters, and the Octopus is definitely one of them. Besided their awesome arms, they’re big, agile, and very smart. Yet, you wouldn’t immediately think about a species of octopus being toxic.But that’s exactly what the Blue-Ringed Octopus is. For not only is this octopus toxic, it arguably has one of the most deadly toxins in the world today. Why is that? It’s because the Blue-Ringed Octopus’ toxin doesn’t have a cure at the moment, and if poisoned by the creature, treatment via artificial respiration must be done immediately, else the victim will die. And since you’d likely be underwater when you were poisoned by the octopus, that would be extremely difficult. Even if you did manage to make it happen, you’d have to keep doing it for an entire day just to make sure that the poison works its way out of your system. That’s a lot of work, and not feasible in many cases. Ironically though, the poison isn’t injected into the body via the tentacles. Rather, it’s done via its mouth. It’ll bite a victim if it’s spooked or stepped on, and that makes it a near-instant kill for the creature.Another irony is that while the Blue-Ringed Octopus is very distinctive in appearance, it’s actually rather small compared to other octopuses. At most, they get to be 8 inches long. But despite its size, it’s definitely something that all divers or swimmers should be on the lookout for. 4. Pufferfish When it comes to creatures who don’t look deadly, but most certainly are when provoked, the Pufferfish is the embodiment of that statement, and more. Who knew right? This in fact is rather ironic, because the Pufferfish looks like any other fish in the ocean. It doesn’t appear to have spines or fangs or anything else that can be used to inject poison. But when you provoke it, it became a living ball of death. The Pufferfish has the Tetrodotoxin poison, and this poison makes it deadly in every way imaginable because of the amounts it has within it. As a natural defense mechanism, the fish will fill it body with air and water, and then expand into a ball-like form. Furthermore, all Pufferfish (and members of its family) has spines within its body, which are expanded more in this “defense form”.So in the course of a second it can turn from a cute little fish into a spiked ball that is filled with poisonous intent. Literally. There is enough Tetrodotoxin in a Pufferfish to kill 30 humans, and there’s no cure for this particular venom. Touching it, eating, or any real contact with a Pufferfish can lead to near instant death because of the amounts of venom within its body.What’s more, cooking a Pufferfish is a danger all on its own, because if you don’t know how to extract all the poison from within it, you’ll die, which is why all countries but Japan and a few others have banned the import of Pufferfish. So if you swim in the oceans where it lives, and you see it, keep your distance, you will most definitely live longer as a result. 3. Black Widow Spider One of the most infamous spiders in the world, the Black Widow spider is known for many things, but its venom is what separates it from many spiders, and other creatures, in the world.But ironically, it’s for all the wrong reasons. The venom of the Black Widow spider actually won’t kill you unless various things happen, but that doesn’t mean it can’t ruin your life for a while. What’s more, people think that just being around a Black Widow spider is cause enough for it to bite you, it’s not the case. They actually won’t bite unless directly provoked. But don’t let that fool you, just because they won’t bite often, or be fatal, doesn’t mean their venom is something to laugh off. It’s one of the most dangerous venoms in the world by far.They say that if you get bit by the spider, your life is “on hold” until you either wait it out or get treatment. Some of the things you’ll experience while under the venoms power is cramping, irregular heartbeat, sweating, extreme muscular pain, tremors and delirium. But there’s more, the anti-venom actually isn’t an option unless the symptoms become very violent. Often times you’ll be given painkillers and told to wait out the first few hours, which can be the worst of it. But the other reason this venom is so legendary is that its symptoms can last days or even WEEKS. And until it’s out of your system, you won’t be having a “normal day” in your life. So it won’t kill you, but it’ll make you miserable for some time to come. 2. King Cobra The King Cobra is, in fact, the longest venomous snake in the world today, and it’s earned quite a reputation as a result of this fact.And obviously part of that fame is because of its size. On average, the King Cobra can reach around 13 feet in length, but, they can also get up to 18 feet in length at times. Their “trademark move” is one that has become legendary in TV and movies, the King Cobra will actually “stand up” via raising its body vertically, and actually stare their prey in the eyes before striking them. Because of this, they can actually “stand” 6 feet in the air, the size of a rather tall human. Technically speaking, the King Cobra doesn’t have the most potent venom in the world, but what it lacks in “potency”, it makes up in volume. A single bite from a King Cobra snake has enough venom to kill 20 men. Or…if you combine all that, a single bite can kill an elephant. What might be the most ironic thing about this is that the snake is actually very shy, and prefers to stay out of sight, especially around humans. But, when it is trapped or threatened, it’ll become the most aggressive thing around. 1. Box Jellyfish There are many ways to describe the pain of a bite, especially when it has venom pouring into your body.But when it comes to the Box Jellyfish, one victim actually went very poetic about it all: “Your heart strains too hard and so with the rest of your body. Every nerve ending alerts you, in the manner most suited to it, that you are being attacked. Only your consciousness works well, or well enough to remind that you are just alive. It always obeys pain. You make rash decisions as fear takes control. You miss your last allies: strength and hope as the neurotoxin enters the your body and introduces consciousness to absolute pain.” Aside from the pain, the power of the venom of the Box Jellyfish is capable of killing you within 5 minutes of the sting if not treated properly. Making it a race against time to get cured before it’s too late. And while you might think, “Oh, just avoid them!”, the Box Jellyfish are actually pretty transparent, so it’s incredibly tough to see them, let alone get away from them, as they can grow up to ten feet in length, or more depending on the species. The Box Jellyfish has without a doubt the most potent venom in the known world today.Thanks for watching! What did you think about these amazingly powerful creatures?
