Armed with a list of 10 creatures Thorn Toxic

poison dart frogs

Unlike most other frogs, a species active during the day, and often shows bright-colored body. Although all dendrobatids at least somewhat toxic in the wild, the level of toxicity varies from one species to the next, and from one population to another. Many species are critically endangered. Amphibians are often called by the native indian dart frogs due to the use of their toxic secretions to poison the tip of his arrow.

Most of the frogs of this type has a body size of 1.2 cm for adult frogs, although there are frogs in size up to 6 cm. The average size of their weight about 2 grams. These brightly colored frogs in addition to also display the pattern aposematik to warn potential predators. their bright colors associated with them and the level of toxicity of alkaloids. Frogs as Dendrobates species has a high alkaloid

Poisonous mushrooms

Some mushrooms safe to eat humans and even some medications are considered nutritious, such as mushroom (Volvariela volvacea), oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus), ear mushroom (Auricularia polytricha), button mushroom or champignon (Agaricus campestris), and shiitake mushrooms (Lentinus edulis).

A poisonous mushroom is Amanita muscaria for example, and fungi, known as the "destroying angel". The characteristics of Poisonous Mushroom (a) Types of toxic mold in general have a striking colors: red-blood-jet black, dark blue or other colors. Although there is also the type of toxic mold that has a bright color 
(yellow) or white, and edible mushrooms, dark, chocolate-old example.

(B) The types of toxic mold can produce odors that nose piercing, like the smell of rotten eggs or ammonia smell. 

(C) The type of toxic mold has a ring or cup. Although there is the opposite, like mushrooms, have a cup and straw mushroom compost has a ring, but not poisonous. 

(D) Types of poisonous mushrooms are generally grown in a dirty place: a garbage dump, dirt enclosure, and so forth. Although for the planting and maintenance of mushroom compost instead used dirt barn / horse manure. 

(E) If the type of toxic mold dikerat by a knife made of silver, or dikerat by ordinary knife and then brought near to keratan silver objects before, then the object is formed of silver or blue-black color, it signifies that the mushrooms are poisonous. 

(F) The type of toxic mold quickly change color, for example from white to dark color, when cooked or heated.

(G) There is a hereditary habit among farmers in the village to determine whether toxic mold or not, by the way memepes mushrooms with white rice. If then color of the rice turned into a dark color, indicating that the fungus including toxic species. 

(H) In many European countries and America, many "mushroom hunters" who deliberately brought pigs trained to distinguish the types of toxic and did not.

Beetles bomber

Beetles bomber is one of the popular insect by using chemical methods to protect themselves from enemies. In a state of emergency, this insect spray of hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinone that are stored in the body into the enemy to protect themselves. Before the fighting, special structures called lobes expenditures made both concentrated mixture of these chemicals. This mixture was stored in a separate room called the storage space. This space is connected with the second chamber called the detonation chamber. Both spaces are kept separate from each other with sphincter muscle. When the insect feel the danger, the muscles that surround the storage space while contracting the sphincter muscles relax, so that the chemicals in the storage room flowing into the detonation chamber. A large amount of heat released and there was evaporation. Vapor and oxygen gas glide uses pressure on the walls of the blasting chamber and the chemical substance is sprayed into the enemy through a channel that leads out of the beetle's body.

Sea anemone

Anemone body shape like a flower, so it is also called the sea rose. The circular folds of the body and pieces of this animal's mouth split into capitulum at the top and bottom scapus. In between the arches like the neck (collar) and the base of the capitulum there is a "fossa". Mouth pieces of flat shape, circular, sometimes shrink, and are equipped with tentacles except on the type Limnactinia, mouth pieces are not equipped with the tentacles. Some sea anemones can move like a snail, moving slowly in a way attached. . Most of the sea anemone have stinging cells that are useful for protecting themselves from predators

Scorpion is a group of segmented animals with eight legs (oktopoda) included in the order Scorpiones in the class Arachnida. Scorpions still allied with the scorpion, spiders, mites, and ticks. There are approximately 2000 species of scorpions. Scorpion body is divided into two segments: the cephalothorax and abdomen. Abdomen consists of the mesosoma. All species of scorpion have a can. In general, can be included as a scorpion neurotoxin (nerve poison). An exception is Hemiscorpius lepturus which have to cytotoxic (cell poisons). Neurotoxins consist of small proteins as well as sodium and potassium, which is useful to interfere with nerve transmission of the victim. Scorpion uses venom to kill or paralyze their prey so easily eaten.


entipedes or Centipede is an arthropod animals belonging to the class Chilopoda and upafilum Myriapoda. Centipedes are metameric animal that has a pair of legs on each body segment. These animals include venomous animals, and includes a nocturnal animal.

Silkworm Fur

Caterpillar is the larval stage of species in the order Lepidoptera, which includes butterflies and moths. Most are plant-eaters, although some species are insect eaters. Most caterpillars are considered as pests in agriculture. Many species of moth caterpillars are known as stage causing damage to fruit and other agricultural products.

1. Head 2. Chest 3. Stomach 4. Spirakulum 5. Anal hooks 6. Leg stomach (abdominal) 7. Segment 8. Limbs Chest (thoracis) 9. Antenna Most caterpillars have long body and shaped gilig (cylinder). Caterpillar has three pairs of true legs on the three segments of the chest, plus four pairs of legs, called limb artificial stomach in the middle segment of the abdomen and often a pair of abdominal legs on the last abdominal segment. Silkworm has ten abdominal segments 4. wasp waist thread (Thread - waisted Wasp) Pictures of thread-waisted wasp Ammophila Ammophila waspThe yarns are wasp-waisted long, black and red-orange with a thin waist, or pedisel, connecting the stomach and chest, and long hind legs. Body design resembles a helicopter Sikorsky Skycrane, an adaptation has a practical purpose - this is a solitary wasp caterpillar hunter, is designed to bring a lot of caterpillars to feed their offspring. It looks similar to a wasp cutworm Podalonia men. 

This species is solitary wasp hairy caterpillars prefer to feed the larvae. This sting prey to paralyze it, so the food stays fresh but did not crawl away. Wasps will fly prey immobilized on shallow ground nest, lay eggs on it and close the hole. Hornet nests may have some holes, and remember their location, may re-open again and provisions them with more food. Its offspring hatch, consume the host for the week prior to devour and kill them, and pupates underground before appeared in the mid to late summer as a single adult. 

Adult wasps feed on nectar of flowers. Hornet imagine about two inches long and are found feeding on flower nectar rabbitbrush. Starting all over the United States and southern Canada, prefer inhabit open areas.

Jellyfish - Jellyfish box

Box Jellyfish / Stinger / Sea Wasp / Fire Medusa / Indringa (box jellyfish) Species - Chironex box jellyfish fleckeri shaped transparent light blue, bell or cube with 4 sides. Its speed to 4 knots. The length of each side 20cm (1-3 feet), body diameter 20-40 cm (1-16 inches), but there are up to 2m (6.5 feet). With 15 tentacles in each corner, with a length up to 3m, to 5000 nematocyst (sting cells). Like other cnidarians, jellyfish have a sting cells (cnidocyte) containing the nematocyst in the tentacles. A capsule (nematocyst) in the tool can (cnidoblast) consists of the trigger structure and stinger. When victims come into contact with the tentacle, hundreds to thousands of nematocyst issued. Nematocyst pressure forced the sting spread quickly, the toxin that paralyzes. Can (Venomous) No chance of survivors from the shock can be rapidly unless treated. Flavor is very sick to anaphylactic shock and drown before reaching the beach, although not all can work. People who are stung should be treated as victims of snake bite and was immediately taken to hospital after first aid. Highly poisonous sting that can cause death. Predators are very toxic. Known also as the sea wasp, jellyfish salad bowl this size can have 60 tentacles 15 feet, and each tentacle can have a 5000 sting cells in the epidermis, and has enough poison to kill 60 humans. So a total of 3600 people could die by a jellyfish. Toxins in the form of a lethal dose LD50 (Lethal Dose), the form can be 40 microgram / kg. Even the usual sting can cause death within a few minutes with a death rate of 20% occurred respiratory failure, neuromuscular paralysis, and cardiovascular failure. Symptoms are burning, reddened skin, and swollen lymph glands. Her reaction to breathlessness and even heart failure.


Tarantula '(as the term used in North America) consists of a group of hairy and often very large arachnid family Theraphosidae, of which about 900 species have been identified. 

Some members of the suborder same can also be called a "tarantula" in general. This article will limit itself to the members explaining the Theraphosidae. Brazilian tarantula in attacking positions Several genera tarantulas hunt prey mainly on trees; hunting others at or near the ground. All tarantulas can produce silk, whereas arboreal species will usually be in a "tube tent" silk, terrestrial species will line their burrows with silk to stabilize and facilitate the burrow wall to climb up and down. Tarantulas generally eat insects and other arthropods, using ambush as their primary method of capturing prey. The biggest tarantulas can kill large animals such as lizards, mice and birds. Tarantula found in tropical and desert regions around the world. Most tarantulas dangerous to humans, and some species are popular in the exotic pet trade. All tarantulas are venomous, but only a few species have venom that, although not known to have produced human casualties, can produce extreme discomfort for several days.
