8 MOST DANGEROUS CREATURES OF THE WILD 5-8

Continuing on the topic of the most dangerous animals found in the wild, we narrow down our list to a few more creatures you would want to avoid. While some may have a nonthreatening – or even adorable – appearance, it is important to be on guard if you ever come across one.

#5 Siafu Ants
Despite being small in size, these red ants are warriors of their own. Also named Driver Ants, the Siafu Ants move in groups of up to 50,000,000, forming a single entity even if one ant of the bunch faces danger. This can be quite an alarming sight, and it is well advised to not crush even one of these tiny critters by accident. Once they latch on to their target, they are impossible to brush off, as their forceful jaws will clamp into any surface. They are incredibly dangerous for a creature of such small stature, and can certainly bite off more than they can chew.

#6 Deathstalker Scorpion
While most deadly scorpions portrayed in the media are characterized by a fearsome black appearance, the Deathstalker Scorpion is comparably much less menacing in its looks. In fact, this bug has a yellow-green color that makes it look somewhat comical and cartoonish. However, it is responsible for a majority of deaths resulting from scorpion attacks. Human adults and children can also die from the bite of the Deathstalker.

#7 Puffer Fish

Another arguably adorable creature on this list, the sweet, innocent looks of the Puffer Fish can be quite deceptive. When exposed to threat and dangers, they puff up with their jut out, razor-sharp spines. These spikes possess poison to paralyze its prey, making victims unable to breath and face their eventual death. That said, some like to eat the Puffer Fish – and if it is consumed with ill preparation, that can also lead to death.

#8 Stone Fish
On to topic of venomous fishes, we lastly introduce the Stone Fish, who are the most poisonous sea animal in this world. They are deadly not only because of their toxic attacks, but they also possess impressive speed and are difficult. In fact, the shape of their bodies and coloring are their weapons of camouflage, as they look like a part of the jagged, rocky sea floor. Hence, they are given the name Stone Fish. Do not make the mistake of stepping on one – like the Puffer Fish, it will attack you with its fatal venom in its spine.
