Today, animals of all kinds can be considered dangerous. Some on this list have been known to kill a lot of people. Some of them are beautiful animals. However, looks can kill. All animals listed here are deadly, and some of them were only found to be so in the last decade. You're going to be stunned by what some of these animals can do.
The Boomslang is a snake that is primarily found in the South African area, but has been known to make its rounds throughout the African continent. It is one of the deadliest snakes in the world for a couple of reasons.
As you can see from the pic above, the fangs on this guy are big, and this is uncommon among the Boomslang's species. The eyes are also interesting. In fact, they have better eyesight than most snakes. Some say its eyesight is as good as a normal human being.
As most people know, snakes don't typically have the best eyesight. The Boomslang breaks that trend in a major way. They have been known to pick birds right out of the air due to their tremendous sight.
A human has no chance of escaping a bite if the Boomslang chooses to attack them. They usually don't go after humans, but will when threatened. Many of them are green and brown, so they blend in well with the wooded environment in which they thrive.
Boomslangs contain a Hemotoxin venom that, when injected, can kill within hours. A person will literally bleed from the inside out. You will bleed from every hole in the body. You'll even bleed from the ears, eyes, and penis/vagina.
The deadliest part of the whole thing is that the only place in South Africa that has the Antivenom is Johannesburg. So, if you're out in the bush when you get attacked, you may not make it to the hospital in time. Obviously, the smaller you are, the quicker it'll kill.
If you don't get treatment quickly, you'll start to wish you did, so don't play around with this. The average time for the poison to kill is a mere two hours. However, the longer you wait, the greater the risk for long term damage.
