IS THERE A GOOD WAY TO DIE?
Barracuda are so bad they got two spots..
Riveting, rich and informative.
I can't speak as to how bad some of these creatures are, but I have first hand experience with Brown recluses. Swelling, inflammation, blood poisoning, two weeks on crutches and finally, all the skin on the top of my foot peeled off. The bite often feels no worse than a mosquito.
Great show- now I can sell all my outdoor stuff and move into a hermetically sealed condo someplace. Oh, I forgot the rats...
Not trying to start a holy war; but you guys forgot the worst way of all.....without Jesus.
John 3:16 & 17
The idea of "most venomous" needs to be clarified. For instance, is it based on a drop for drop venom analysis, amount of venom injected, bite frequency, frequency of dry bites, etc. Also there were a number of factual errors describing the biology of some of them, i.e., the fire ant is not a wasp. What is not in question is the danger posed by all the creatures discussed.
I'm going to have to reread the article and count how many times the words 'the most venomous' occur.
Very interesting (and fraightening). But you forgot some: I just mention the weaverfish (trachina draco): common along all the mediterranean and western European coasts up to the English Channel. Its sting causes excruciating pain, and possible fainting causing drawning.
i would also have liked to read the latin/scientific names of all the listed "pets".

i would like to add ex-wives to that list. great post, though.
Great slide show. We used it as part of our homeschool lessons today. We added a badger though, as our 15 year old son was attacked last October on a deer hunt in northern Nevada. That badger and our son Russell and his Uncle Scott are in our profile pic.
Nile CrocodileThe Nile Crocodile is the largest croc in Africa and can grow to more than 18 feet in length. These crocs are known for ambushing prey such as zebras and gazelles, along the river's edge, but they've also been known to attack humans. Photo: bobisbob
