  • The geography cone is a species of predatory sea snail that has particularly potent venom

  • indigenous to the reefs of the Indo-Pacific, and it's the most deadly of over 500 species

  • of cone snails. There is no known anti-venom, and treatment includes simply keeping someone

  • alive until the toxins wear off. It has been nicknamed the "Cigarette Snail" because its

  • believed that a person stung by one would have enough time to smoke a cigarette before

  • dying.

  • What The FAK: The facts and knowledge on Deadly Animals.

  • A single bite delivered by the Inland Taipan can kill up to 250,000 mice and has strong

  • enough venom to kill 100 adult men, and it has has the ability to kill someone within

  • 45 minutesFound in Australia, it claims the top spot as the most venomous snake, but,

  • luckily, it's shy, making human bites nearly non existent. Hospitals equipped with anti-venom

  • have kept the death toll to zero known deaths from this particular snake, nicknamed the

  • "Fierce Snake" because of the potency of the venom, and not the behavior.

  • The Stonefish is one of the most venomous fish known in the world. They are found in

  • the Indo Pacific Ocean but can also be found in Florida and the Caribbean. It has thirteen

  • stout spines in the dorsal fin which can inject a highly toxic venom that causes intense pain,

  • tremendous swelling, temporary paralysis and even death if not treated quickly. They are

  • able to live out of the water for up to 24 hours and they blend into the background often

  • looking like an encrusted rock or lump of coral so they are commonly stepped on making

  • stonefish anti venom the second most administered in Australia.

  • The Tsetse Fly is a bloodsucking fly found in Africa that transmits the parasite causing

  • what is commonly known as Human Sleeping Sickness. It can drink twice its weight in blood at

  • every meal, and once an infected fly bites you the infection quickly spreads through

  • your blood. It is fatal if untreated and between 300 and 500,000 people are estimated to suffer

  • from the disease. The flies are hard to control and, unlike most biting flies where only the

  • female feeds on blood, both males and females are blood suckers.

  • The Box Jellyfish developed its powerful venom to instantly stun and kill prey so their struggle

  • to escape wouldn't damage the delicate tentacles. It has venom considered to be among the most

  • deadly in the world, and it is said to be so painful that many victims die from going

  • into shock and drowning after being stung. They are found primarily in the coastal waters

  • off northern Australia and throughout the Indo Pacific. Each tentacle has around 5,000

  • stinging cells and, depending on the location of the sting, can cause severe symptoms, including

  • cardiac arrest. Vinegar is said to inactivate the remaining stinging cells left in the skin,

  • and many Australian beaches have a bottle stored on the beach next to warning signs.

  • The Box Jellyfish has a tiny relative found in the same area that causes severe pain and

  • is nearly invincible. Called Irukandji, the name refers to any species that causes the

  • same symptoms- the exact amount of species that can cause them is still unknown. Though

  • it is not as deadly as the larger Box Jellyfish, the pain is excruciating and there is no anti-venom.

  • Symptoms include lower back pain, muscle cramps, sweating, nausea, and can last up to a week.

  • Many patients require large doses of morphine to get them through the pain, but there are

  • actually few known deaths from these little guys.

  • The Brazilian Wandering Spider held the Guinness world record for "Most Venomous Spider" in

  • 2007, and is still believed to hold that title. They originated in Brazil but are found throughout

  • South and Central America. Brazilian Wandering Spider is actually a generic name for eight

  • species that belong to the same genus. It wanders all over the place searching for prey

  • and does not wait in ambush like a majority of spiders. It is not afraid of humans, and

  • shows a defensive posture by standing on its back legs and will attack when needed. Its

  • bite can be one of the most excruciating of all spider bites because it has very large

  • fangs. Oh yeah, it also causes men to have long lasting and painful erections.

  • The Blue Ringed Octopi are tiny and the most deadly of all cephalopods. Their common name

  • comes from the bright blue rings that come to life when threatened. Though humans are

  • rarely bitten, there is no anti-venom and life-saving efforts have to be put into place

  • until the toxins wear off. If bitten you'll feel nauseous, possibly go blind, lose sense

  • of touch, speech, and the ability to swallow, and within 3 minutes paralysis sets in and

  • your body goes into respiratory arrest. Constant CPR is needed to keep the heart pumping until

  • the body is able to breath on its own. And it carries enough poison to kill 26 adults...So...don't

  • touch it.

  • Before the advent of the anti-venom the Black Mamba bite was 100% fatal. Most snake's venom

  • travels slowly through the blood allowing time for them to get treatment, but the Black

  • Mamba venom starts within 20 minutes and can be fatal in only six hours. They are found throughout

  • most countries in sub Saharan Africa, can reach up to 14 ft in length, and travel up

  • to 12 MPH. They generally avoid humans, but, if threatened, they are fast, highly aggressive,

  • and often raise a third of their bodies off of the ground, then strike repeatedly if the

  • attacker persists.

  • The creature that causes the most deaths among humans is pretty small, really annoying, and

  • not nearly as intimidating as the others. The Mosquito causes millions of deaths world-wide

  • every year from transmitting malaria, yellow fever, encephalitis, and west nile virus.

  • I'm gonna leave you with this Scorpion, considered one of the deadliest in the world, whose toxins

  • are being used to fight brain cancer.
