  • Perhaps the most common fear that all humans share is the fear of venomous animals. In fact, the fear of spiders and snakes are the two most commonplace phobias. Usually this fear is misplaced as the vast majority of snakes and spiders are completely harmless, however, I’m afraid that this video won’t help abate any fears you currently hold. Some of you may end up avoiding certain parts of the world because of some of the animals mentioned. The animals on this list are ordered by increasing subcutaneous LD50 (Lethal Dose 50%), so the further up the list we go, the smaller the amount of venom it would take to potentially end your life.
