Box jellyfish

One of the scariest animals in the world. They don’t look evil or that they wanna hurt you. Probably they won’t. But if you are unlucky don’t sweam in the ocean in Australia.

Well, stay out of the water when box jellyfish come close to shore to breed! Sting can be unbelievably painful. The venom is designed to paralyze fish, so it immobilizes your nerves and affects breathing and movement. A large dose can cause cardiac arrest and death within minutes!

Black mamba

The black mamba is the most venomous snake in Africa. This snake lives in the savannas and dense forest south to the Sahara. The black mamba is not actually black. They can vary between green or metallic grey. But the interior of their mouth is black.

It’s very fast and territorial snake. Before attacking it emits warning sounds. It injects about 100 milligrams of venom in one bite, with only 15 milligrams being deadly for any human being.

Irukandji jellyfish

Scientists are not sure of the full range of locations where you can find them, but the most often they are in deep water.

Getting stung by these little buggers can bring on Irukandji syndrome. Taking about 30 minutes to set in, the syndrome can be marked by severe lower back pain, cramps, sweating, nausea, anxiety and other, even more, fatal symptoms.

Sydney funnel web spider

Did you know that only the male bite that can be fatal?

The funnel web spiders can die on direct UV light, so they need to hide during the day. So it’s possible that these spiders find a dark place in your shoe. They also love to hide under something like a pile, brick or a log.

The venom of the Sydney funnel web spider can cause death. It contains a neurotoxin component that affects the nervous system. You should know that the bite is very painful, and symptoms include sweating, tingling and muscle spasms.

Stonefish

Why the name Stonefish? Well, because this fish actually looks like a rock. It’s one of the most venomous fish in the world. If you get in the contact with the spines on their fins can be deadly to humans. They can sting in the water but also on the beach, as they can survive on the sand for hours.

So, be extremely careful where you step on if you visit Indo – Pacific coast!
