ok let's get this out of the way now
venomousare not the same thing there are countless lists and videos out there titled touch the 10
animalswhich aside from being
mostcopies of others usually have about eight venomous
animalslisted there are venomous animals that inject toxins into prey and then there are venomous animals that release toxins into or onto a predator now that you properly understand the difference let's get into the real duo fish introduction perhaps the most common fear shared by all humans is fear to poisonous animals, in fact, the fear of spiders and snakes are the two most common phobias, usually this fear is misplaced since the vast majority of snakes and spiders are completely harmless, however, I I'm afraid this video will not help allay the fears I currently hold that the animals on this list are ordered to increase the subcutaneous lethal dose by u n fifty percent, so the higher up the list we go, the less amount of venom it would take to potentially end your fifteenth life blue-ringed octopus this shy, golf ball-sized octopus has a venomous bite with an ld50 of only 0.3 to 0.36 milligrams per kilogram a milligram is about the same weight as a dollar bill or a large grain of sugar and already on this list we have a poison deadly enough to be lethal in quantities that they weigh less than those of mice.
It takes about twenty-five milligrams of the venom to kill an adult human male, however, a single blue-ringed octopus. it carries enough venom to kill 26 humans, the little octopus bites when threatened and many don't even feel the small cut in their skin, they only realize they've been made up when symptoms started showing up, said symptoms include respiratory problems , paralysis, heart failure, blindness and death. in as little as fifteen minutes if left untreated there is no antidote for blue ringed octopus bites your only hope is artificial respiration until symptoms subside so make sure you avoid the prett and blue rings of this octopus if are you ever off the coast of australia quick note you will soon notice that australia is regularly mentioned in this video number 14 the stonefish the spines on the stonefish are back contain a crude poison with an ld50 of only 0.3 milligrams per kilo , making the stonefish the most poisonous fish in the world, and of course, it lives in the Indo-Pacific region and around Australia.
With all its weight and footing, it will likely receive a large and lethal dose of venom. The venom causes severe pain, muscle corrosion, tissue death, nerve damage, and paralysis, making the stonefish a perfect fish for your aquarium. Fortunately, there is an antidote available. for the stonefish, although an untreated sting could kill you, we recommend you check out the smarter every day video to learn more about stonefish number 13, the Deathstalker scor. Pion scorpions are one of the oldest venomous animals in the world. planet with ancestors stretching back more than 400 million years, so it's no surprise that a species had enough time to produce one of the deadliest poisons on the planet with an LD50 of just 0.25 milligrams per kilo.
The little assassins carry enough venom to kill a child or someone allergic to it, but are rarely fatal to healthy adults. very suitable for a quick kill for some reason, rumor has it that scorpions can glow in the dark to confuse predators, this is completely false, scorpions only glow under ultraviolet light, not to mention glowing in the dark would be the worst defense imaginable for something trying to hide from predators in the dark number twelve Mojave Rattlesnake The neuro and heme toxins produced by this snake have an ld50 of 0.21 milligrams per kilogram found living from the Mojave Desert to central Mexico the Mojave rattlesnake is perhaps the most toxic snake in the Americas based on ld50 they are most active from April to September and can be accidentally encountered by humans as they blend in so well with their surroundings Well the venom transferred in a rattlesnake bite Wahhabi rattlesnake will produce extreme pain, destroy tissue, kill nerves and may r lethal luck for us.
Snakes rattle to warn nearby animals to stay away. deaths caused by these snakes every year number 11 the killer caterpillar did not expect to see a soft moth larva on this list did you find it in southern Brazil and even Erick why the hemotoxin carried by the killer caterpillar has an ld50 of the point 19 milligrams per pound which causes internal bleeding around the bite site if you are unlucky enough to place a body part on top of the green llar caterpillar, luckily a caterpillar doesn't seem to carry enough venom on its own to cause the death of an adult healthy human; however, caterpillars like to hang out in large groups in trees; accidentally rest your hand against them and you will probably bleed to death. an antidote to the caterpillars' venom has been produced from within, but that doesn't mean stepping on one hurts any less Number 10 Sydney funnel-web spider for some reason Australia seems to be home to numerous incredibly toxic organic death machines, but millions of people still insist on living their male spiders of this species carry a trackhoe toxin a venom with an LD50 of 0.16 to 0.25 milligrams per kilogram the fangs of this spider are like hardened daggers that can pierce a toenail With a good enough hit, in fact, the fangs sink so deep when the spider attacks that they have to be removed or shaken vigorously from the skin.
The venom of funnel-web spiders attacks the respiratory system and could potentially cause death in just 15 minutes. minutes since 1981 there have been hundreds of bites but thanks to the creation of an antidote there has not been a single death attributed to the spider for decades number Ero 9 The Brazilian Wandering Spider If you've seen our video covering deadly toxins that you may notice need to be reworked after ld50 in this video, then you should already know a thing or two about the Brazilian Wandering Spider Phoneutria venter toxin 3 with an ld50 of just 0.134 milligrams per kilo that makes this spider the most venomous in the world if enough venom is administered in one bite death can occur due to paralysis and suffocation although it has a third symptom known as priapism you can look for what what that means to you, although the spider has been referred to as the bone of death by the low grade 1 because of this, the Brazilian wandering spider gets its name from its exploration of the jungle floor at night before finding a place to rest during the day one or i these places could be a banana patch which in turn puts the spider on a ship to a foreign country to sell to an unsuspecting family, to Although there is an antidote if you're in a country thousands of miles from Brazil, I might have trouble getting number 8 Maricopa Harvester and I bet you didn't think the most poisonous insect in the world would be an ant huh, the bite of the Maricopa harvester ant found almost exclusively in Arizona has an ld50 of only 0.12 milligrams per kilogram, the sting of a single harvester ant will inflict intense burning pain that lasts for around hours, fortunately each ant weighs just under a milligram , so it would take over 200 bites to kill a full grown adult unless you are allergic to them, unfortunately each bite contains an alkaloid that alerts other ants in the vicinity and causes them to attack as well.
There is no antidote for these ants, but it is doubtful if anyone died from Maricopa ja. Messrs Rance however black tiger snake number seven returns to sub-tropical areas of Australia come on the ld50 of black tiger snake venom is around 100 micrograms per kilogram which is 2000 times deadlier than cyanide of sodium. Tiger snakes are quick to flee from humans, although they may do so if threatened. strikes with incredible accuracy and carries enough venom to kill dozens of people the cocktail of toxins released by a black tiger snake can kill in 30 minutes through a combination of antivenin for blood clotting and paralysis has been greatly reduced As measured by the number of deaths per year caused by tiger snakes, though untreated bites, they have a 40 to 60 percent mortality rate and there are still victims each year who couldn't get to a hospital fast enough.
Number 6 Many Banded Krait South China Vietnam and Taiwan are home to an incredibly venomous and cannibalistic snake species, the Mini Banded Krait has a special neurotoxin with an ld50 of only 90 to 108 micrograms per kilogram of venom that causes very little pain and hardly any swelling but within a few hours of being bitten the symptoms of the bite finally show up in the form of double vision, flu-like symptoms and shortness of breath, all cage species feed on a variety of animals, such as fish and frogs. however, they are also adapted to feed on other snakes, even their own species, but curiously they are very placid snakes and seem to attack only when directly threatened.
The Indian Ocean While we cover the world's five most venomous animals most sea snakes are incredibly venomous, but the do-boy sea snake is by far the most venomous of the bunch with a venom with an LD50 of just 44 micrograms per kilogram, have you ever seen a moray eel before they are the eels with huge jaws and a second set of jaws that extend from their throat and are used to swallow prey? eels considering the fact that moray eels can easily remove their human fingers, it is not surprising that the boy's sea snake has such a powerful and fast-acting neuro and hemotoxic venom, luckily for us sea snakes are very docile and only use venom when defending about 25% of the time sea wasp with an ld50 of only 40 micrograms per kilogram this translucent jellyfish is the most venomous and deadliest jellyfish in the world, being responsible for over 100 deaths in UN since 1884 The tentacles of the sea The wasp can reach up to 3 meters in length and house thousands of tiny cnidocytes that act like tiny venomous darts that shoot venom into the skin of animals A single large sea wasp carries enough venom to kill a few 60 people, those stings are usually mild, however if you somehow got entangled in the jellyfish the amount of venom released from its stingers p It could be life injuring from cardiac arrest in just 2 to 5 minutes.
Victims of its sting described the p Ain the tentacles inflict as being like being branded with a hot iron wherever it lands on the skin, an antidote is available, but if you've been Chopped enough to need it, you may never return to coast number 3, the East. brown snake known as the second most venomous snake in the world eastern brown snakes cocktail of neurotoxins and blood coagulants has an ld50 of only 36 point 5 to 50 micrograms per kilogram this snake can often be found on farmland as it is they are attracted to their main food source mice that often roam human settlements a bite from an eastern brown snake can cause seizures dizziness kidney failure paralysis and of course death if left untreated even though the eastern brown snake this is only the second most venomous snake in the world in australia 60% of all fatal snake bites can be attributed to the eastern brown snake you know it almost feels like australia was never intended to host life human number two, inner Taipan, inner Taipans five nom, drop by drop, make her the most snake poisonous on the planet and registers an LD50 of only 25 micrograms per kilogram.
A single snake can carry enough venom to kill more than 200,000 mice or about 55 adult humans. The poison cocktail carried within. Taipan seems to be designed to kill everything, containing neurotoxins, chemotoxins, myotoxins, and possibly more, which boils down to a treatment that kills over 80% of people bitten. The thing about the snake is that it changes color from winter to summer, which makes it even more difficult to identify. Fortunately for most living creatures, this snake is only found in remote areas of Central Australia, but seriously, if you're afraid of snakes or spiders, why would you? i live in australia number one ok be honest going into this video did you have the faintest idea that the most poisonous animal on the planet would be a snail? cone snail only six inches long when fully grown harbors a venom made up of a complex of hundreds of toxins that have an ld50 ranging from 12 to 30 micrograms per kilogramand of course this specific snail lives along the north coast of australia and wonderful family holiday destination the cool little tube you see sticking out of the shell acts as a chemoreceptor to pick up the scent of nearby prey the method why a cone snail releases venom is by using a concealed harpoon it shoots at its victims from inside its mouth the venom works so fast people used to think you only had enough time to smoke a cigarette before you kicked the bucket over well i guess that it makes sense that the geographic cone snail would have such a powerful and fast power -Acting Vin, it is a snail after all, it's not like it can chase its prey, as always, be sure to check the description of the sources until the next video cheerio just remember you bite it and you die it's poisonous it bites you and you die it's poisonous you bite it and you die it's voodoo whoo
