Six More Animals You DO NOT Want to Encounter in the Wild



September 26th, 2013 by in Animals with 4,502 Views

Animals are part of the beauty we see in the world. However, there are some that pose a threat to human life through their venom. Even though many wild animals are dangerous, it will be good to note down these animals plus take a revisit to the original post.

The Box Jelly Fish

It is interesting to note that the most dangerous animal in the world is a fish! Do not underestimate this animal. Research indicates that since 1954, the Box Jelly fish has caused the death of 5,567 people. The toxins from this fish attack the heart, the skin cells and the nervous system. If you ever come into contact with its venom, you will experience an overpowering pain that will lead you straight into shock and heart failure.

The chances of surviving a box jelly attack are almost zero unless treatment is administered immediately before its venoms reach the main blood vessels. If you are lucky to survive, the pain will be with you for weeks or even months. The box jelly fish is found in waters around Asia and Australia and should you see this fish anywhere, avoid it like plague.

The King Cobra

With lengths of up to 5.6 m, this snake is not only the longest venous snake in the world but also makes it to the list of the most dangerous animals in the world. The snake eats other snakes and has been known as the king of other snakes. Why should you avoid the King Cobra? Well, it is because if it bites you, you will be dead within a period of fifteen minutes! The king cobra is so dangerous that its bite can kill a full grown Asian Elephant in 3 hours!

Even though its venom is not as toxic as that of other snakes, in a single bite, it has the capability of injecting up to 600 mg more venom  than any other snake. This snake is found across South east Asia and most dense highland forests across the world.

The Marble Coned Snail

If you thought snails are harmless, then, you are mistaken. Even though this snail may deceive you with its beauty, it is as deadly as all the other animals listed here. Just a single drop of its poison has enough power to kill over 20 people! This snails is mostly found in warm salt water environments. Should you see this snail, don’t even imagine picking it up for in doing so, you may be signing your death certificate.

When it stings, you will sooner or later experience intense pain, muscle paralysis, changes in vision and failure in breathing. Worse to this is that there is no anti-venom for its venom.

The Blue-Ringed Octopus

This animal is the size of a golf ball but has venom powerful enough to kill 26 adults within minutes. Worse to this is that there is no antidote to its venom. It has a painless bit which seems harmless but will immediately lead to muscular weakness, numbness and breathing difficulty. Death is certain under these conditions. The Blue-Ringed Octopus is found in the pacific ocean.

The Death Stalker Scorpion

Just like the name suggests, one bite from this scorpion and you are as good as dead. Its venom causes intense pain, fever, coma and finally convulsions and paralysis leading to death. These scorpions are common in North Africa and the Middle East.

 The Poison Dart Frog

This frog can take credit as the most poisonous animal existing on the planet. The venom within its body is capable of killing 10 people. With poison as little as 2 micrograms, the frog can kill a human being or any large mammal. More scary is the fact that they keep their poison in their skins and will kill you should you touch and eat with the same hand.

    I would say any animal you encounter is dangerous. Just make them scared and put them in a corner, there natural instincts are to probably attack you. You have a higher chance of dying from smoking cigarettes than getting killed by an animal.

    This is factually true,these animals are the beasts of the world.They are more dangerous than the most powerful guns/weapons in the world.
    The good thing is,they are rarely found anywhere in the world.

      There is no way I would choose any of these animals over a gun

    Aside from the King Cobra, all of these creatures are extremely small in size. It is rather hard to believe that such creatures could possess the capacity to do such damage. However, in Australia you have the brown widow spider; in North America you have the brown recluse spider and the black widow…and while none of the creatures mentioned are animals, it is rather bizarre that such small things can do so much damage.
