We all know lions, tigers and snakes are dangerous creatures. But have you ever heard of stone fishes and dart frogs? We bet you haven’t yet.
But just in case you come across one, here are some of the world’s most dangerous animals you’ve never heard of:
1. Stone Fish
The stonefish is considered the most venomous fish in the world. Its sting is so painful that its victims demand that their limbs be amputated.
A victim who got spiked in Australia described, “Imagine having each knuckle, then wrist, elbow, and shoulder being hit in turn with a sledgehammer over the course of about an hour. Then about an hour later, imagine taking a real kicking to both kidneys for about 45 minutes so that you couldn’t stand up or straighten up.”
2. Dart Frog
There is a large variety of dart frogs in the world but the most poisonous is the one shown in this picture, the golden poison arrow frog.
