August 26, 2013

Brazilian Wandering Spider

The Brazilian wandering spider may be small (its only five inches across) it was named the worlds most venomous spider by the Guinness World Records in 2010. The highly aggressive spider is also called the Banana spider because it is often found in bunches of the fruit. Their fondness for hiding in bananas sometimes means an unlucky customer picks one up at the supermarket. In 2009, the Brazilian spider was found at a Whole Foods in Oklahoma.

Poison Dart Frog

While the elaborate designs and bright colors of the poison dart frog may attract the eyes of humans, it is meant to scare away potential predators. Not all varieties of this frog are deadly, but do not touch! The poison is found on the skin of the animal.

Pufferfish

Almost all pufferfish contain the poison tetrodotoxin which is up to 1,200 times more dangerous to humans than cyanide. A single pufferfish contains enough poison to kill 30 adult humans and there is no known antidote.

Cone Snail

Don't be fooled by the colorful shell and small size of this underwater creature, one drop of venom from the cone snail is enough to kill a person. It is nicknamed the cigarette snail, because once bitten, a person will have enough time to smoke one cigarette before dying.

Box Jellyfish

The box jellyfish uses its powerful venom to kill its prey like fish and shrimp. However, their venom contains toxins that attack the heath and nervous system and can cause overpowering pain to its human victims. Humans who are stung by the box jellyfish will often go into shock or die of heart failure. Those who survive the attack will be in immense amounts of pains with severe burns at the site of the sting. Each tentacle has approximately 5,000 stinging cells.
