Some creatures might be small, but do you know how to identify some of the most powerful animals out there? If you see any of these creatures, you should run fast and immediately ask for help. From caterpillars, snails, and frogs to spiders, scorpions, and snakes, these are some of the most powerful creatures on the planet and their bites can have an immediate effect on your body.
Let’s start with the puss caterpillar, a creature that seems so fluffy it would never be capable of hurting a human being. But puss caterpillars come with toxic needles that are hidden away between the fluffy fur. If touched, they cause terrible pain that can be compared to a burning sensation and the pain of being on fire.
Dart frogs are known as some of the most colorful frogs out there. You’d never think that a frog this fun-looking could actually be crowned as one of the most toxic species on Earth, right? Strangely enough, even though these frogs’ toxins largely come from eating their prey, their bodies can actually stay unaffected by all harmful substances they consume themselves.
Snails can be found just about anywhere, but you should always run away from snails with shells shaped like cones. They’re known as cone snails, but they also come with up to 100 toxins in a single needle that can leave their potential preys completely paralyzed in a matter of minutes. Pretty powerful for a snail, right?
