WATCH OUT ! IT MAY GUN YOU DOWN 1

Dear loving readers,

Last 2 weeks, we launched a series of amazing bridges all over the world. Today onwards, you'll be learned about the 10 most poisonous animals. Hope that you will enjoy reading them and be prepared or else you may be gunned down by these animals.

As we learn about these animals, we invite you to share some suggestions on the precautions we can take by leaving comments on each post.

1. Box Jellyfish





The top prize for The World Most Venomous Animal,would go to the Box Jellyfish. It has caused at least 5,567 recorded deaths since 1954. Their venom is among the most deadly in the world. Its toxins attack the heart, nervous system, and skin cells. Worst of all the jelly box venom is so overpoweringly painful, that human victims go in shock, drown or die of heart failure before even reaching shore. Survivors experience pain weeks after the contact with box jellies.

You have virtually no chance to survive the venomous sting, unless treated immediately. After a sting, vinegar should be applied for a minimum of 30 seconds. Vinegar has acetic acid, which disables the box jellys nematocysts that have not been discharged into the bloodstream (though it will not alleviate the pain). Wearing pant hose while swimming is also a good prevention measure since it can prevent jellies from being able to harm your legs.

Box Jellyfish can be found in the waters around Asia and Australia.

Be vigilant and make sure that the water is clear of this box jellyfish before you jump into the sea.

Guess what is the next most poisonous animal?

Hope that this post won't scare you of from swimming in the sea water, but rather help to equip you with appropriate prevention measure.
