Living in the tropical, humid regions of South and Central America, these poisonous frogs can kill 10 people with their poison. They get their poison from their diet of ants, termites, and mites. Small, but deadly, these frogs can be as small as 1.5 cm in adult length and weigh on average a slight 1 oz.
Why are they called Poison Dart frogs? Indigenous tribes used their poison to make poisonous arrows when hunting for food. While their bright colors are stunning, they are a sign of the toxicity of the species and a way to warn potential predators to stay away.
The lionfish is beautifully hypnotizing, with its fiery red-orange color and intricate rays for fins. Those beautiful bright colors and the fan-like fins might tempt first-time snorkelers into reaching for one, but that would be one dumb move to make.
These exotic-looking fishies are incredibly poisonous. When they sense a threat they can use their beautiful stingers to inject lethal poison, which comes down to an excruciatingly painful experience.
Anyone in their right mind would steer clear of sharks. Any kind of shark, not just the great white one. Similar to the great white, the tiger shark is huge and doesn't normally attack humans, but that doesn't mean it can't.
Most of the tiger shark attacks happen during the night. If you do have a tiger shark coming across your path while in the ocean, you do not need to panic, just try to keep calm (as much as you can, you are still a short distance away from an apex predator) and swim away to safety.
These animals will eat anything in sight that has meat on it. They don’t usually kill humans, but this is probably because they live far out of reach. These mammals live within the Arctic Circle and spend many months of the year on sea ice, hunting seals.
They may seem cute on TV, but don’t let their looks fool you; these creatures will tear you apart. They weigh around 350-700 kg and can cover many miles on foot and run on land thanks to their large limbs and feet.
Mata Mata Turtle
The Mata Mata turtle is often referred to as the weirdest turtle on earth. These turtles are quite big and can reach up to two feet in length.
When a small sea creature gets close enough to the Mata Mata turtle, it simply opens its mouth, sucks it in, and bites down on it quickly, ensuring a fantastic meal. Don't think it won't do the same to you if you get too close.
