The world that we live in is pretty dangerous one, even in human only environment but if you wander into an area dominated by some of the animals from the list down below, you better be careful. Most of these spices are not predators, they simply developed a self-defence system and will not attack you unless they feel endangered.

7. Brazilian Wandering Spider

Basically this is the most venomous spider that you can find and the one responsible for most human deaths. Because of his yellow color he is often called “the banana spider”. In 2007 it was named the most venomous animal in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records. If it finds itself in populated areas the spider tends to hide in houses and cars during the day, so if you happen to go to South America, watch out.

6. Blue-Ringed Octopus

This is very small animal that can easily fit into your pockets but keep it away because it possesses the venom strong enough to kill more than 20 people. The octopus lives in the Pacific ocean around places like Australia, Philippines, Japan and Indonesia. If you get infected by its venom you will experience blindness, paralysis or you can even die.

5. Death Stalker Scorpion

People from North Africa and Middle East have to watch out about these. The scorpion’s venom is very potent with neurotoxins so if it manages to sting you, the unbearable pain would occur. Apart from that, respiratory failures are reported as well as paralysis and death.

4. Stonefish

The most venomous fish out there is often found in shallow waters of the Indian ocean and the Pacific. It is reported that the pain caused by the fish is one of the worst on the planet. It is so severe that some people even request their libs to be amputated. If the Stonefish gets you, better get your treatment immediately because the venom works very fast. Swelling, tissue death, paralysis, shock and of course death are effects of the poison.

3. Marbled Cone Snail

The snail possesses the venom that can be very deadly. If you are lucky symptoms are pain and numbness while in other case you would experience vision loss, respiratory failure, paralysis and even death. The marbled cone snail is one of the most dangerous animals on the planet since there is no anti-venom available.

2. King Cobra

Cobra is one of the longest venomous snakes in the nature. This snake is very notorious one as it even eats other snakes when hungry. Its potent poison is strong enough to kill 20 people and because it acts fast, victims have to react quickly. You can encounter them in jungle areas of South India and China. We should add that the poison of Cobra is not as potent as poison from some other snakes but it injects it 5 times faster which is why it kills quickly.

1. Box Jellyfish

Definitely the most venomous animal around the globe is Box Jellyfish. The venom attacks nervous system, skin cells as well as increasing the blood pressure so the most victims experience hearth attack before reaching the shores which is why this animal is responsible for over 6000 since 1950. Not only that the venom is very potent but also it acts very quickly as it can kill you in only 30 seconds. So if you find yourselves in Australia or Asia don’t swim too far.
