The world is a wild place, full of all sorts of animals trying to survive and share the planet with us. Divided into predators and prey, depending on where you are on the food web helps to determine how easy your life is. And as you go up the food chain, the more likely you are to find a dangerous animal, right? Well, that may be conventional wisdom, but we are forgetting about the fact that the animals lower down have also evolved and developed ways to defend themselves.
In fact, there are all sorts of wild animals which we would never even think about which are quite dangerous, especially to us humans. These creatures have all sorts of neurotoxins to keep predators (and those who they perceive as predators) at bay, thereby keeping themselves alive. So while they may look beautiful, the animals on this list are also basically carrying a sign that says “do not touch!”
