15 Most Poisonous Animals Ever


From demons in the outback to fingernail sized ocean killers, we count down 15 of the deadliest creatures ever to squirt liquid pain directly into your bloodstream.

15 – Puffer Fish


  • This is the second most poisonous vertebrate on Earth
  • The venom is so powerful that your muscles will paralyze, you’ll be in excruciating pain for between 4 and 24 hours, then you will inevitably die because there is no known antidote
  • Yet somehow the puffer fish is still a delicacy in Japan and Korea, though only certified chefs are allowed to prepare it

14 – The Brazilian Wandering Spider


  • Also known as the banana spider, it’s been commonly referred to as the most venomous spider in the world currently known to exist
  • They frequent tropical South America, but one species inhabits Central America, and they’re responsible for more human deaths than any other spiders
  • They hide in houses, clothes, boots and cars, then they strike with a venom so powerful that it can cause an overwhelming blood to pump into your erection, resulting in permanent impotence
  • That’s right, this damn spider can kill your dick

13 – Platypus


  • You thought these Australian mammals were cute fuzzy little teddy bears? Think again, the male’s hind legs are covered in a highly poisonous venom that can kill a dog, and severely mess up you or me
  • It’ll paralyze you, possibly for months, all the while in excruciating unbearable pain
  • You can also develop edema on the wound, when fluids build up beneath your skin and swells the affected area to huge sizes

12 – Stonefish


  • This is officially recognised as the most poisonous fish on Earth
  • It lures its prey by pretending to be a rock, mostly around shallow tropical waters in the Indian and Pacific oceans
  • Then the dorsal fins activate, spines filled with toxic venom kill any who dare step near
  • The curious thing is, if a human foot steps on it for example, it’ll inject an amount of venom proportional to the amount of pressure applied to its body

11 – Deathstalker Scorpion


  • These nightmare creatures walk through North Africa and parts of the Middle East
  • Though it’s small, one sting will cripple a human adult male, and likely kill an infant or elderly person
  • Likewise, the FDA hasn’t approved an anti-venom, and even if they did, the Deathstalker’s venom is highly resistant
  • Unrelated though still an interesting little fact: the Deathstalker can glow in the dark, mainly to confuse would-be predators

  • Epic (26%)
  • Wat (16%)
  • Lewd (11%)

  1. Samantha this is quite a graphic detircpsion of what a spider actually does i think! You have used words that made the hairs on my arms stand up jabbing it with venom, waiting for it’s appetite to return, carcases of helpless animals. This is a very menacing piece brilliant! Thank you fro writing for the 100WC!
