Earlier we wrote about animals that seem rather harmless, friendly and cute, but in fact are serious and dangerous ( part 1 ). With such animals you need to stay alert, and some are better not to approach. Today we continue the list of these animals.
Outwardly, the fish looks quite harmless.
In the east, dishes are prepared from it in a special way, but this fish contains deadly poison, from which no antidotes have been found. There is enough poison in one fish to kill 30 people.
It lives in tropical waters near northern Australia, the islands of the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.
This cuttlefish is bright and beautiful, somewhat similar to the hero of a funny cartoon. However, danger lurks behind this beauty. Cuttlefish metasepia prefferi is the only poisonous of its kind. Her poison causes breathing problems, nausea and heart failure. Death occurs in just a couple of minutes.
It lives in Africa.
It looks like an ordinary bird, its chicks are very cute. But the spur goose has special razor-sharp spurs on its wings for fighting with other geese.
And that's not all - this goose is one of the most poisonous birds on the planet. He gets this poison by eating the poisonous bugs of the bark.
It seems that peaceful builders of forest dams are capable of very fiercely guarding their territory. Their main weapon is the famous teeth, very long and very sharp. A beaver can easily bite a limb, which leads to severe blood loss.
These animals are considered one of the most dangerous predators. They have very strong jaws that can easily break the bones of their victim and bite through thick skins. In addition, badgers are very fast, agile and easily dodge enemy attacks.
But the badger has one more weapon - it’s a nasty smell like a skunk’s, which stuns and drives away the enemy.
Bright colorful frogs possess stings, with the help of which they inject very strong poison. Their coloring serves as a warning to predators.
The Indians used the poison of these frogs for hunting, lubricating them with their wind pipe needles.
Kids of this unusual animal are cute, and an adult platypus looks like a fancy toy.
But do not forget that, growing up, platypuses acquire poisonous stings. These stings are connected by a duct to the femoral gland, and in the mating season, this gland begins to produce a poisonous cocktail.
It is designed to fight males with rivals in mating. This poison is enough to kill a small animal. For humans, it is not fatal, but it is very painfully tolerated, and treatment can take several months.
Everyone knows dolphins as cute, smart and friendly animals, they often save people.
But dolphins have outbreaks of anger, they can attack a person and cause him serious damage.
Bottlenose dolphins are the only among their brethren who can kill a person even for no apparent reason.
Also a pretty peaceful big animal.
For centuries, it has been used by people for complex work where strength is needed. But do not forget that there were many cases when elephants, falling into a rage, attacked people.
And to stop such a huge and powerful animal is difficult.
People treat these graceful animals with caution, probably the big horns still inspire respect.
And they’re doing it right, since there are known cases of deer attacking a person.
Although everyone knows about the ferocity of tigers, lions and other large feline cats, apparently, associations with cute, domestic cats dull the sense of danger.
Iron bars of cages, metal nets, high fences in zoos and in the circus arena are set up not only to protect predators from people, but also people from predators. So that the curious, children and lovers of spectacular shots do not come too close to the fence.
Animals surround us and are part of our life, but do not forget that no matter how defenseless and friendly they look, you must always be careful and not get close to an unfamiliar animal. Appearance is often deceiving.
