In comparison to venomous animals, poisonous animals are far and few between. It turns out having to get halfway eaten before potentially harming a predator isn’t an incredibly popular adaptation in the animal world. But the animals who managed to stick it out utilize some of the most lethal toxins on the planet, some even eclipsing what even the most venomous animals in the world are capable of. The animals on this list are ordered by increasing oral LD50 (Lethal Dose 50%), so the further up the list we go, the smaller the amount of toxin it would take for your body to fade to room temperature.

Days upon days looking through books and research articles trying to find the best way to make this list because for some reason, no one has seemingly ever put together a list of just poisonous animals. I apologize if I sound silly for being miffed because of this, but seeing hundreds of lists simply copying one another with no attempt to do actual research themselves was disappointing to say the least. I’m not sure if this list is the gold standard, but it’s certainly a start for anyone else who wants to make an even better list in the future. THANK YOU ALL for 17k subs! If you read this far, I’ll let you in on a little secret: Our next video will be about more disappearance, but this time without any of the lighthearted stuff.
