Mother Nature does what she wants, when she wants – hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, and more. These are just a number of major adverse events that Mother Nature inflicts on us, but then there’s one thing we haven’t considered here either. Animal species. I know, I know, the two are seemingly unrelated. Until you really pick it apart and notice that no one can indict when a natural disaster is going to strike, all we know is the results are disastrous. At the end of the day, the same can be said about the world’s most dangerous species. We don’t know when they’ll strike and the results are almost-always devastating. Take a look at the list we’ve compiled showcasing the world’s most dangerous species that you need to steer clear of – let’s hope it’s on your health insurance coverage.
If you’re ever in the Middle East and Africa, or in the desert and scrubland habitats, then no doubt you’ll encounter the Deathstalker Scorpion. While rarely dangerous to adults, a bite alone contains enough venom to seriously endanger children and the elderly. Filled with neurotoxins, the poison can send victims into anaphylactic shock; if the anti-venom is received in time, chances of survival are dramatically improved.
