5 Tiny but Deadly Creatures. These tiny animals might be small but they are deadly! Deadlier than most big animals. Tiny but lethal!
Known as The Silent Assassin, this jellyfish has been reported as one of the most venomous creatures on earth. Almost impossible to see with the naked eye, it leaves no mark on the body, and the sting can go completely undetected by the victim until Irukandji Syndrome kicks in. If immediate medical action is not taken, within only 20 minutes, the victim can go into cardiac arrest and die.
4. Poison Dart Frogs
Bright colors in nature are often a sign of danger, and these flamboyant little frogs are no exception. The most deadly species, the golden poison frog, carries enough toxin on average to kill 10 to 20 men. That's pretty impressive for a creature that only grows to about 1.5 inches in size.
3. Japanese Giant Hornet
It is the world's largest hornet but still easily small enough to qualify for this list! Native to temperate and tropical Eastern Asia. Each year in Japan, the human death toll caused by Asian giant hornet stings is around 30 to 40. Its stinger injects an especially potent venom that contains–like many bee and wasp venoms–a cytolytic peptide that can badly damage tissue. They are also known to chase after people in groups. The pictures really tell the story…
2. Blue ringed octopus
Despite their small size and relatively docile nature, they have proven to be a danger to humans. They can be recognized by their characteristic blue and black rings and yellowish skin. It’s venom is powerful enough to kill humans. No blue-ringed octopus antivenom is available yet, making it one of the deadliest reef inhabitants in the ocean.
1. Deathstalker scorpion
The deathstalker scorpion is regarded as a highly dangerous species because its venom is a powerful mixture of neurotoxins, with a low lethal dose. The Deathstalker scorpion has the strongest venom of any scorpion. If stung, a person will experience extreme pain, convulsions, paralysis and even death due to heart and respiratory failure.
