Six Deadly Animals That Can Fit Into Your Shoes

October 20th, 2013 by in Animals with 1,974 Views

We all wear shoes and at times, we do it without checking them. There are some creatures that can fit into those shoes and before anyone knows what happened, you are already dead! The next time, before you wear your shoes, check them carefully because one of these animals may be waiting to have a bite of your feet! Here are six of the most dangerous animals which can fit into your shoes and kill you in no time.

1. The Brazilian Wandering Spider

This spider was in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2007 as the most venomous spider in the world. It is the spider responsible for most human deaths. Check your shoes for this spider because it lives inside houses, clothes, cars and other dark places.Its venom is so poisonous such that 0.012mg is enough to kill you! What makes them even more dangerous is that they are always wandering and will very easily get into your shoes.

2.  The Geographic Cone Snail

You have heard of snails but you have probably not heard of the geographic cone snail.  If you are reading this, thank your luck because the geographic cone snail has not made it into your shoes. Otherwise you will not be around to get to know this.

Even though chances are rare that the geographic cone snail will make it into your shoes because it is found mainly in Australia, when it does and stings your feet, you will immediately begin experiencing headaches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pains. You will finally experience respiratory failure leading to death.

3.  The Rat Flea

If you thought fleas are not dangerous, think again! There is a breed of fleas that you will not love especially inside your shoes and they are the rat fleas. These fleas are no bigger than the human nail but carry venom strong enough to send you to your grave with a single bite. Its not a joke, in two years between 1348 and 1350,  the rat flea had killed an estimated 350 million people worldwide! This flea is also know as black death because of its fatality.

4. The Bullet Ant

Never dream to be stung by a bullet ant especially on the feet. This ant may not be as deadly as the other animals but it boasts of being the animal with the most painful bite in the world. Its bite earned it is name because it leaves you feeling as if you have been shot with a bullet! The sting causes so much pain that you may scream yourself out for the next 24 hours after the bite.

5. The African assassin Bug

This is another type of animal that you do not wish to meet in your shoes any time of day or night. It is a brightly colored bug with venom which is ten times more potent than that of the cobra. The African Assassin bug will paralyze you with when it bites you.

6. The Kissing Bug

They may not be famous inside shoes and may not kill you instantly but when they do find themselves in your shoes and take a bite at your feet, they infect you with the Chaga’s disease. Statistics indicate that this disease kills about 20,000 people yearly and so, its best you check your shoes twice before wearing them on.

    When I was fourteen I ride a tree and bitten by a bullet ant. I still can’t forget the pain. Maybe this is the smallest animal which has a lot’s of bite pain.

    I think the Kissing Bug and the African Assasin bug pics are switched. I saw the dark-colored bug today and I believe it is the Kissing Bug. I hope so, as the African Assasin is more deadly! I sprayed the bug withe hornet spray and it didnt phase it! I put the boot to it!
