5 tiny creatures that can kill you, why not educated your self just encase you come across any of these deadly creatures.

Blue Ringed Octopus

Probably one of the smallest creatures on the list as most adults grow as much as 5 centimetres in size, The Blue Ringed Octopus is one of the deadliest. If provoked or even made contact with, The Blue Ringed Octopus will bite its victim, Injecting them with poison that causes their victim to quickly lose their vision and start to feel numb.

The Octopus will then latch onto its victim to tear and suck on their flesh and blood. Not with it being small in size, you would think that the venom it induces onto its victim wouldn’t be lasting. Well it’s venom is so dangerous that not only can it kill it’s victim but as of right now, there is no cure.

Cone Snail

So who would have guessed that a Snail is one of the most dangerous, tiny creatures out there? Cone Snails are found in the Indian and pacific ocean as well as the coast of Florida.

Although Cone Snails are slow moving creatures, They make up for their speed by being able to shoot a venomous harpoon to catch their prey. Their venom is strong enough to kill humans.

Irukandji Jellyfish

One of the smallest creatures on this list, The Irukandji Jellyfish is one of the smallest members of the Box Jellyfish family but is one of the most deadly.

The venom that these jellyfish produce is said to be the most venomous toxin produced by an animal on the earth with it being over 100 times more powerful than that of the king cobra. These things are small but are certainly something to be scared of.

Black Widow

The black widow spider is one of the most well known breeds of spiders on the planet. They are known for biting their victims which makes them contract a neurotoxic venom that is said to be 15 times more toxic than that of a Rattlesnake.

Their venom will cause their victim to be in intense pain for up to 8 hours depending if their venom kills their victim or not. Luckily however there is an anti-venom that is available to minimise any damage that could be lasting.

Poison Dart Frog

Although not considerably threatening in appearance, The Poison Dart Frog is one of the quicker killers on the list as 1 drop of toxin from this amphibian can kill a person within 3 minutes ,
