After a sting, vinegar should be applied for a minimum of 30 seconds. Vinegar has acetic acid, which disables the box jelly’snematocysts that have not yet discharged into the bloodstream .
It has caused at least 5,567 recorded deaths since 1954.
Their venom is among the mostdeadly in the world. It’s toxins attack the heart, nervous system, and skin cells. And the worst part of it is that jelly box venom is so overpoweringlypainful, that human victims go in shock, drown or die of heart failure before even reaching shore.

Blue-Ringed Octopus
The Blue-RingedOctopus is very small, only the size of a golf ball, but its venom is so powerful that can kill a human. Actually it carries enough poison to kill 26 adulthumans within minutes, and there is no antidote.
They are currently recognized as one of the world’s most venomous animals.
Its painless bite mayseem harmless, but the deadly neurotoxins begin working immediately resulting in muscular weakness, numbness, followed by a cessation and breathing andultimately death.

Poison Dart Frog
This frog is probably the most poisonous animal on earth.The 2 inch long (5cm) golden poison dart frog hasenough venom to kill 10 adult humans or 20,000 mice. Only 2 micrograms of this lethal toxin (the amount that fits on the head of a pin) is capable ofkilling a human or other large mammal.
Poison dart frogs keep their poison in their skins and will sicken or kill anybody who touches or eats it.
