The top prize for The World Most Venomous Animal, would go to the Box Jellyfish. It has caused at least 5,567 recorded deaths since 1954. Their venom is among the most deadly in the world. It's toxins attack the heart, nervous system, and skin cells. And the worst part of it is that jelly box venom is so overpoweringly painful, that human victims go in shock, drown or die of heart failure before even reaching shore. Survivors experience pain weeks after the contact with box jellies.
This little beautiful looking Marbled Cone snail can be as deadly as any other animal on this list. One drop of its venom is so powerful that it can kill more than 20 humans. If you ever happen to be in warm salt water environment (where these snails are often found) and see it, don't even think of picking it up. Of course, the true purpose of its venom is to catch its prey.
Symptoms of a cone snail sting can start immediately or can be delayed in onset for days. It results in intense pain, swelling,
The Blue-Ringed Octopus is very small, only the size of a golf ball, but its venom is so powerful that can kill a human. Actually it carries enough poison to kill 26 adult humans within minutes, and there is no antidote. They are currently recognized as one of the world’s most venomous animals.Painless bite may seem harmless, but the deadly neurotoxins begin working immediately resulting in muscular weakness, numbness, followed by a cessation and breathing and ultimately death.They can be found in tide pools in the Pacific Ocean, from Japan to Australia.
DEATH STALKER SCORPION
Contrarily to the popular belief most of the scorpions are relatively harmless to humans as stings produce only local effects (pain, numbness or swelling). However, the Death Starker Scorpion is highly dangerous species because its venom is a powerful cocktail of neurotoxins which causes an intense and unbearable pain, then fever, followed by coma, convulsions, paralysis and death. Fortunately, while a sting from this scorpion is extremely painful, it would be unlikely to kill a healthy, adult human. Young children, the old, or infirm (with a heart condition) are at the biggest risk.
Death stalker scorpions are spread in North Africa and Middle East.
Maybe Stonefish would never win a beauty contest, but it would definitely win the top prize for being The World Most Venomous Fish. Its venom causes such a severe pain that the victims of its sting want the affected limb to be amputated. It is described as the worst pain known to man. It is accompanied with possible shock, paralysis, and tissue death. If not given medical attention within a couple of hours It can be fatal to humans.
Stonefish stores its toxins in gruesome-looking spines that are designed to hurt would-be predators.
Stonefish mostly live above the tropic of Capricorn, often found in the shallow tropical marine waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans, ranging from the Red Sea to the Queensland Great Barrier Reef.
This spider is believed to have the most potent neurotoxic venom of any living spider. Only 0.006mg (0.00000021oz) is sufficient to kill a mouse. They are also so dangerous because of their wandering nature. They often hide during daytime in highly populated areas inside houses, clothes, boots, and cars.
Its venomous bite causes not only intense pain, the venom of the spider can also cause priapism - uncomfortable erections lasting for many hours that lead to impotence.
The prize for The Worlds Most Venomous Snake goes to the Inland Taipan of Australia. Just a single bite from this snake contains enough venom to kill 100 human adults or an army of 250,000 mice. Its venom is at least 200 - 400 times more toxic than a common cobra. The Inland Taiwans extremely neurotoxic venom can kill an adult human in as little as 45 minutes.. Fortunately this snake is very shy and there have been no documented human fatalities (all known bites were treated with antivenin).
If you ever happen to be running through the rain forests somewhere in Central or South America, do not ever pick up beautiful and colorful frogs - it can be the Poison Dart Frog. This frog is probably the most poisonous animal on earth.The 2 inch long (5cm) golden poison dart frog has enough venom to kill 10 adult humans or 20,000 mice. Only 2 micrograms of this lethal toxin (the amount that fits on the head of a pin) is capable of killing a human or other large mammal. They are called dart frogs because indigenous Amerindians use of their toxic secretions to poison the tips of their blow-darts. Poison dart frogs keep their poison in their skins and will sicken or kill anybody who touches or eats it.
Puffer Fish are the second most poisonous vertebrate on earth (the first one is golden dart Frog). The meat of some species is a delicacy in both Japan (as fugu) and Korea (as bok-uh) but the problem is that the skin and certain organs of many puffer fish are very poisonous to humans.
This puffy fish produce rapid and violent death..Puffers poisoning causes deadening of the tongue and lips, dizziness, vomiting, rapid heart rate, difficulty breathing, and muscle paralysis. Victims die from suffocation as diaphragm muscles are paralyzed. Most of the victims die after four to 24 hours. There is no known antidote, Most deaths from fugu happen when untrained people catch and prepare the fish.
Statistics show that there were 20 to 44 incidents of fugu poisoning per year between 1996 and 2006 in all of Japan and up to six incidents per year led to death. Since Fugus poison can cause near instantaneous death, only licensed chefs are allowed to prepare it.

Makanan juga boleh menyumbang kpd bau badan. Peluh mengandungi protein atau minyak drpd bawang merah (union), bawang putih (garlic), kari dan makanan berempah mempunyai bau lebih kuat.
Keadaan menjadi lebih teruk jika kita memakai pakaian yg tidak menyerap peluh. Peluh yg terperangkap menyebabkan kulit (khususnya di bhgian yg nyk kelenjar peluh spt di bawah lengan, kaki dan celah kangkang) menjadi lembap dan akan merangsang bakteria.
Cara terbaik bagi mengatasi masalah bau badan ialah :
- menjaga kebersihan diri spt kerap mandi sekurang²nya 2kali sehari. Gunakan sabun atau cecair mandian, terutama ketika cuaca panas.
- gosok bahagian yg kerap berpeluh bagi membuang sel mati dan membuka liang roma (ketika mandi). Ini juga dpt merangsang peredaran darah dan membantu melancarkan proses penyingkiran bhn toksik.
- kerap bercukur pd bhgian² tertentu, krn ianya mengurangkan bakteria dan bau badan.
- pakai pakaian deperbuat drpd kain kapas atau fabrik yg boleh menyerap peluh dgn baik.
- memakai deodoran atau wangi-wangian yg tidak keterlaluan.
- kurangkan pengambilan makanan berproses, awet dan mengandungi byk pewarna.
- kurangkan pengambilan gula, kafein dan alkohol
- kurangkan merokok (bg perokok) atau lebih baik jika dpt meninggalkan terus tabiat buruk ini.
- minum lebih byk air iaitu sekurang²nya 1liter sehari, seelok²nya mulakan hari dgn meminum segelas air yg dicampur sedikit perahan limau.
- makan lebih byk makanan mengandungi serat serta sayur²an campur (spt kentang, keladi, kacang, brokoli, kubis, bunga kubis dan lobak) yg dikukus.
- kurangkan makanan pedas, berempah dan yg berbau kuat (spt bwg merah, bawang putih dan kari).
- mandi sauna atau wap seminggu sekali (jika perlu).
Jika masalah teruk hingga menjejaskan aktiviti harian, minta doktor merujukkan kpd pakar krn ada pembedahan yg boleh menghentikan masalah hiperhidrosis.
Seandainya masalah tidak berkurangan, jalani pemeriksaan kesihatan krn bau peluh yg kuat boleh menjadi petanda pada masakah kesihatan spt penyakit hati, kencing manis (diabetis), mengalami jangkitan kulat atau masalah pd usus.

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.
SON: "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"
DAD: "Yeah sure, what is it?" replied the man.
SON: "Daddy, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?" the man said angrily.
SON: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "If you must know, I make Rs.100 an hour.
""Oh," the little boy replied, with his head down.Looking up, he said,"Daddy, may I please borrow Rs.50?"
The father was furious,"If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, Then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior.
"The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?
After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and startedTo think:
Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that Rs.50 and he really didn't ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door.
"Are you asleep, son?" He asked.
"No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.
"I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier,"said the man.
"It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the Rs.50 you asked for."
The little boy sat straight up, smiling. "Oh, thank you daddy!" He yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.
The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.
"Why do you want more money if you already have some?" the father grumbled.
"Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied.
"Daddy, I have Rs.100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?
Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."
Lesson to learn from Heart Touching Story: But even better, share Rs.100 worth of time with someone you love. It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts.If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.
