If someone asked you what the most dangerous animals in the world were,
we’re willing to bet you could rattle off a quick top ten.
But what about the most painful animals in the world?
We’re talking the most painful bites, stings,
and stabs in the animal kingdom!
Hello, and welcome to another episode of The Infographics Show.
Today we’re going to take a look
at the top ten most painful animal
attacks you could ever endure.
At number ten is one of the world’s deadliest animals.
It is 100 times more deadly than sharks!
Ranging from Asia to America,
the crocodile claims on average about 1,000 victims every year
versus just ten by sharks.
And while it would be excruciatingly painful
to be chomped on by a big great white shark
a crocodile attack is exponentially more painful
because of the crocodile’s unique physiology.
That’s because, unlike sharks and most other animals,
crocodiles can’t really chew.
Instead,they are forced to tear chunks of meat from their prey
and gobble them up in entire bites.
They do this by the dreaded “ death roll ”
where a crocodile latches onto prey and begins
to violently roll in the water.
Crocodiles have the strongest bite force in the world.
Once the crocodile is latched on,
absolutely nothing will pry it loose,
and the twisting motion of the croc’s body
ends up tearing loose entire chunks of flesh.
Eyewitnesses to crocodile attacks describe seeing
the victims torn to pieces one roll at a time!
At number nine is an Australian native whose
bite is venomous but not deadly to humans.
The Yellow-faced Whip Snake
is an agile and fast predator that preys primarily on
青蛙 小蜥蜴 蜥蜴蛋
frogs,small lizards, and lizard eggs.
Unlike most snakes,
the Yellow-faced Whip Snake is fast enough
to even catch lizards at a full run!
Its bite is venomous as the bites of most snakes are,
but it is not particularly dangerous to humans.
victims have described the pain
as an intense and incredible burning sensation
that creeps up the extremities.
Bites can also cause extreme localized swelling,
and repeated exposure to Yellow-faced Whip
Snake venom makes each subsequent bite even more painful!
At number 8 is a creature whose malice
isn’t exactly an “ attack ”
but more of a total infestation.
The Ascariasis roundworm is a parasitic worm
that lives in the intestines of wild animals
and about 10 percent of the developing world’s human population.
People can become infected via ingestion of Ascariasis eggs
found in feces or soil contaminated by feces
the eggs hatch inside of your intestine,
and the young larvae enter your bloodstream
until they make their way to your lungs
to continue their development.
Once fully mature,
the worms then leave your lungs
and make their way to your throat,
at which point you will either cough up
or swallow the worms lodged in your throat!
Those that are swallowed make their way back
to your intestine where they will mate and
lay more eggs –
some of which will hatch while others exit through your feces.
but that doesn’t compare to the excruciating pain
caused by a total infestation of ascariasis,
which can see the worms multiply to such numbers that
聚集在人体内 造成肠 肝和胰腺的阻塞
they cause a blockage of the intestines, liver, and pancreas.
These blockages can not only lead to sepsis
but also create horrific stomach cramping and pain.
At number seven is a miniature terror
with one of the most painful bites of all insects.
The assassin bug makes its home
across the bottom 2/3rds of the continental United States.
While most bloodsuckers inject their victims
with local anesthetics so
they never even realize they are being bit,
the assassin bug makes its presence known
with a red-hot painful bite compared to burning coals.
As if that wasn’t enough,
about 60 % of all assassin bugs carry Chagas disease,
a parasitic disease that is spread via their feces.
Causing heart failure and enlarged organs,
Chagas disease is incurable, and,
if symptoms aren’t managed,
it is deadly.
6. At number six is another snake,
though this time of a far deadlier variety.
The infamous black mamba snake
makes its home across Africa,
and it has a bite so deadly
it can kill an adult human being in a half hour
with a fatality rate of 100%.
The black mamba’s neurotoxic venom
attacks the nervous system
by destroying the chemicals needed
to transmit signals between nerve cells.
This leads to a paralyzing effect that can
quickly shut down the lungs and heart.
Survivors often describe feeling as if their blood was on fire,
and with the pain radiating from the bite
and expanding across their entire body.
At number five is an arachnid from down under.
Australia’s redback spider makes its home
anywhere humans live,
hiding out under floorboards,
book shelves, and flower pots.
Identified by a red or orange strip on top of their abdomen,
they bear a striking resemblance
to the American black widow spider
but are a fraction of the size.
Barely larger than a match head,
the redback spider nevertheless packs
one of the most painful bites of all spiders.
Extremely venomous, bites from a redback spider
can be lethal for small children.
They cause extreme pain in the affected area
接着是失去协调性 恶心 呕吐
followed by loss of coordination, nausea, vomiting,
and sometimes even convulsions.
only half of the population is a danger to humans,
with a male’s fangs being too small to penetrate human skin.
the larger females fully capable of penetrating human skin
are also extremely aggressive and
and will not hesitate to attack anybody that strays into their webs.
At number four is a distant relative of man’s best friend.
The hyena is a notorious pack killer
given a very wide berth by most Africans.
While most predatory animals ensure a victim is dead
before beginning to eat it in order
to prevent injury to themselves by struggling prey,
hyenas show no such compulsion.
Observed eating crippled animals alive,
hyenas don’t bother making sure their prey is dead
before beginning a feast.
They are all too happy to settle down
and start tearing pieces of flesh with their powerful jaws
the moment they’ve overpowered an animal.
Known for attacking sleeping campers in the bush,
hyenas will often bite people’s faces
还会吃鼻 口 胸 腹股沟的软组织
and eat the soft tissues of the nose, mouth,breasts, and groin,
eventually moving to the stomach and intestines.
Victims typically take minutes to die from blood loss,
though one hopes shock sets in long before that.
At number three is one of the world’s
most unassuming and deadliest animals.
Another native of Africa,
the hippopotamus is extremely aggressive and territorial,
killing 500 people a year.
Weighing in at three tons (3000 kg),
they are also surprisingly fast animals,
achieving speeds of up to 18 mph (30 kph).
Hippos routinely attack swimmers, canoes,
and even speedboats that stray too close.
With their massive jaws and six-inch long teeth,
they have been known to bite people
in half with just one bite.
Their hyper aggressiveness often sees them
continue to maul victims long after they are dead,
trampling them underfoot and even biting limbs off.
In one particularly gruesome attack in 2014,
a hippo upended a boat transporting a group
of 12 children and one adult, killing all of them.
At number two is a bottom dwelling fish from the West Pacific.
The infamous stonefish is perfectly camouflaged to look like…
well a stone, leading many
hapless swimmers to accidentally step on one.
The stonefish is an ambush predator,
and its venom is delivered via its thirteen dorsal spines
and serves only as a protective measure.
When a swimmer accidentally steps on one,
each spine can shoot several ounces of potent venom
deep into the tissues of the stonefish’s victim.
Untreated,a stonefish sting can be
fatal to an adult human within an hour,
but even if treated
the pain will last far, far longer than that.
Victims describe how the pain at first feels
like a hot torch lit directly under your foot.
The burning sensation then moves up the entire length
of your body over the course of hours
as the venom courses through your blood,
and it is followed by a feeling like a sledgehammer
pounding your limbs every ten seconds.
If that doesn’t sound bad enough,
there’s also the fact that the pain can last for days.
At number 1 is the hands down most deadly creature in the ocean.
None are more feared than the Irukandji jellyfish,
which ranges in size from several feet to a few inches.
The initial sting reportedly feels like a little less
than a mosquito bite and is typically ignored by victims.
within 30 minutes, symptoms begin to set in,
including severe headaches, back, muscle,
背痛 胸痛 和腹痛
chest, and abdominal pain with intense cramping. Nausea,
会恶心 呕吐 出汗 焦虑 紧随而来的就是高血压
vomiting, sweating, anxiety, and hypertension quickly follow.
Perhaps the most curious symptom of all
is a feeling of impending doom, with victims
so certain they are facing death they beg doctors to kill them.
If properly treated, most symptoms go away within hours,
but people with particular sensitivity
can experience symptoms that last for up to two weeks,
during which victims describe pain
so intense that even powerful narcotic painkillers have little effect.
When even morphine doesn’t cut it,
it’s a little hard to blame victims for feeling like
they’re going to die!
