10 Most Venomous Animals On The Planet


10 of the most venomous animals on the planet are those that people should stay away from. Studying them, however, is still important.

Indian Red Scorpion


Scorpions are an issue when taken in numbers or encountered accidentally, but many of them are not fatal. This one is, so keep away from it.

Funnel-Web Spider


Anytime something is described as twice as deadly as cyanide it’s fair to state that one should stay away from that thing. Spiders are hard to stay away from sometimes though, those sneaky buggers.



Contrary to what people might have seen in the movies, this snake’s venom does take time to act. But when it does, it’s kind of nasty.

Amazingly, not everyone bitten by this snake dies if left untreated. But they are going to suffer through a horrific experience.

There’s no reason to go after this snake unless you’re researching it. Even then, know what you’re dealing with since the bite on this creature can kill within 30 minutes.

Cone Snail


Nature is interesting. Animals that don’t have size or speed usually have something that keeps them safe, like enough venom in their bodies to kill a few dozen people with a small dose.

Irukandji Jellyfish


How can something the size of a fingertip be so deadly? This thing can cause brain hemorrhages with its venom, it’s that terrifying.

Blue-Ringed Octopus


Most things that can kill you in nature have an antidote. Not this little guy. In less than an hour, its venom can excruciatingly kill a person. It’s one of the most venomous animals on the planet.

Inland Taipan Snake


One drop is enough for 100 men to drop dead, take that in for a moment. Not only that, but it can take up to 45 minutes for the venom to set in.

Box Jellyfish


Something that’s almost transparent in the water and has enough venom to kill 60 people is nothing to mess with. But thankfully, unless you’re swimming in Australian waters you’re relatively safe.
