Special Sub-Topic: What's Your Poison, Mate?
|What animal is number ten in the countdown, feels slimy, and has a long tail?|
stingray. Stingrays' stingers normally won't kill a human-but if you are struck in the chest, chances are you won't make it. Just ask Steve Irwin!
|Try to answer this question. What animal is number nine in the countdown, has a duck bill, and has brown fur?|
platypus. Ankle spurs on the platypus' ankles hold the venom. The venom can kill animals and humans.
|Figure out this: What animal is number eight in the countdown, is red and black, and injects venom from its lower jaw, unlike others of its type.|
Gila Monster. Unlike the snakes of which use hollow teeth, or fangs, the gila monster injects venom into its victim through grooves in its lower jaw.
|Think this one up in your head. Which animal is number seven in the countdown, and has a stinger in its back with only a millionth of an ounce of venom in it?|
bee. Even though bees only contain a millionth of an ounce of venom, the people with allergies of bees have it much worse.
|Tell me which animal is number six in the countdown, and has a curled tail with a stinger at the end of it?|
scorpion. The venom in a scorpion is in its tail. It stings its prey and paralyzes them. However, medicine has been produced with its venom, such as the bee's venom as well.
|Which animal is number five in the countdown, and has fourteen spines on its back with venom in each of them?|
Stonefish. Stonefish live in the shallow waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans. It looks like a rock, but it has twelve to fourteen dorsal spikes on its dorsal fin. Step on it, and good results will be a thing of the past.
|What animal do you think (or know) is number four in the countdown, is the size of a golf ball, and is mainly yellow, except for parts of it?|
blue-ringed octopus. Even though this octopus is only the size of a golf ball, its venom can kill a human. Its blue rings on its body light up when the octopus feels threatned.
|Try seeing what the answer is to this question. What animal is number three in the countdown, and is known for its poison needle?|
Cone Snail. The carnivorous cone snail eats marine worms, small fish, and even other mollusks. Its poison "harpoon" paralyzes fish, so that way it can get the fish easily. Because snails have such slow speed, cone snails only have one shot at getting its prey. The venom can even kill humans, such as many other animals on this list.
|What do you think is the animal is number two in the countdown, and has 50 species of it that are venomous?|
venomous water snakes. Venomous water snakes generally have enough venom in them to kill humans. Like other land snakes, the venomous water snakes have fangs in their upper jaw that contain venom in them.
|Which animal is number one in the countdown, and has thousands of stingers on its stingers?|
Box Jellyfish. Even though not all of the box jellyfish species are venomous, the most venomous ones have tens of thousands of needle-like things on their tentacles. If you live the sting, you won't want to bear to look at the scars. Thanks for playing this quiz!
