Dolphins are cuties! Imagine swimming with one of them – that must be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
☠️ But you know what? A dolphin can kill you. Scientists claim that bottlenose dolphins use their beaks as clubs and their teeth to slash their prey.
These guys’ tails are slightly venomous, so if you step on them you’ll feel pain.
☠️ But stingrays can be deadly, too: if they stab you in one of your vital organs or if your wound gets infected, things can get nasty.
Everybody knows that looks can be deceiving, and slow lorises are the best illustration for it. They emit toxins from their elbows, take the toxins into their mouth, and then lick their fur.
☠️ Seriously, don’t touch these guys – it can result in anaphylactic shock and death.
Don’t try to invade these birds’ territory – cassowaries tend to take it personally.
☠️ They can get pretty aggressive, too, and are extremely good runners, so it’s almost impossible to run away from an angry cassowary. And when they catch you, they will use their sharp claws.
Watch your step! If you step on one these little chaps, they may bite you.
☠️ And then their poison will kill you – there is no antivenom.
Poison Dart Frog
This chap looks sort of cute, but it is actually one of the most poisonous creatures in the world.
☠️ Some of these frogs contain enough poison to kill 20 men.
Don’t judge giant anteaters by their eating habits – these guys can get pretty angry when their territory is invaded.
☠️ Beware, because their sharp claws can easily kill a human.
Yes, this is not a joke: leopard seals are dangerous and are said to actually hunt humans sometimes.
☠️ Usually, they choose penguins, but if there are no penguins around, don’t get in a leopard seal’s way!
Snails can be venomous, too. The cone snail uses its long tooth to sting you – and you will not even feel it because their venom has a painkiller agent.
☠️ Their bites paralyze their victims and can even lead to death.
It might be surprising, but corals are actually animals and some of them can be venomous.
☠️ They use their tentacles to deliver a highly toxic substance which can be lethal for humans. So make sure you wear gloves if you have to deal with corals, guys.
Now you know in what cases it would be wise to run away.
Be careful, though: try not to step on a blue-ringed octopus while you’re running.START QUIZ
