Top 10 Terrifyingly Deadly Sea Creatures



we're gonna need a bigger potion the oceans of the world don't lack deadly and vicious beasts welcome to watchmojo.com and today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 most dangerous sea creatures for this list we're taking a look at the planet's most physically threatening sea dwelling animals that specifically pose danger to humans unless they got really scared and stop creatures that don't target humans or that are mostly dangerous when consumed as food don't qualify thus we're excluding the puffer fish from this list the puffer has a poisonous gallbladder if the otter actually ate the puffer they both died number 10 Barracuda fast vicious and capable of incredible injury that's a frightening combination growing as long as seven feet Barracuda are also known for being quick swimmers and for being keen on brutal ambushes they lie in wait before charging forth and biting down on their prey armed with teeth sharp enough to damage nerves and blood vessels as if that wasn't enough a number of Barracuda have ciguatera toxin in their flesh which can lead victims with nausea hallucinations and other side effects number 9 moray eel found most often in oceanic or brackish water moray eels typically avoid contact with humans whenever possible when sufficiently threatened though these creatures ensure their aggressors get what's coming to them and more moray eel bites can produce easily infected wounds on account of the eels having a large amount of bacteria in their mouths and that's not getting into their ability to chase down and kill other fish with minimal effort small sharks have even fallen victim to their attacks whoever said the electric eel was the only threatening eel around number eight sea snake and here we thought ordinary snakes had enough deadly surprises to offer the world alas the sea snake though typically nonchalant when it comes to other animals still poses a danger thanks to its venom on the rare chance that a sea snake or coral reef snake chooses to inject its toxin while biting a perceived attacker a sizeable list of symptoms are in store for the target the after effects range from elements of nausea to general aching and a tetanus like ailment to even heart failure it's a horrible fate delivered from an otherwise passive animal number seven stone fish looks can be deceiving that's for sure this small breed of fish has an unusual look it resembles a rock bed which is very useful for warding off predators unfortunately those who accidentally tread upon the stone fish will be greeted with sharp fins that can pierce through shoes on top of the initial painful sting victims also have to contend with a neurotoxin that can shut down their respiratory system and even cause their heart to fail yikes found in the indo-pacific area the stone fish is a delicacy in some places after cooking has destroyed the venom that is number 6 stingray it may seem passive but don't dare underestimate it the stingray typically relaxed can hold its own and even do serious damage with its sharp spear esque tail stiffening whenever the Ray detects a threat the tail possesses a serrated tip capable of severing arteries and is lined with venom that particularly endangers mammals the stingrays shear deadliness was tragically shown when in 2006 wildlife expert and television host Steve Irwin was killed by a stingrays tail repeatedly striking him in the heart when you actually put pressure on that sting the venom comes out like an aerosol King number 5 tiger shark the bull shark may be imposing but the tiger shark is something else this large shark has a reputation for attacking and eating anything including smaller sharks and is one of the shark's most frequently associated with fatal shark bites tiger sharks don't seek out humans as food but they do tend to linger in shallow waters and river mouths where contact with humans is most likely what's worse their keen senses and calcified teeth allow them to make quick work of any prey they desire number 4 great white sharks the adjective great being in this animals name is less a statement of positivity and more a grim tribute to its ferocity the great white sharks most immediately recognizable quality is its size they can grow to over 25 feet in length and weigh over 7,000 pounds however these sharks have another notable habit they strike at their prey from below with their mouths wide open allowing their razor-sharp teeth to do as much damage as possible it's no wonder that about a fifth of attacks by great white sharks are reportedly fatal given the viciousness on display number 3 blue ringed octopus oh look at that bright bright color change gorgeous such a pleasant name for such a debilitating Beast in regards to killing power the blue ringed octopus is claim to fame is its infusion of the neurotoxin TTX or tetrodotoxin into its bites humans in particular face the risk of TTX shutting down their respiratory system which can mean death for those without immediate medical attention considering that one blue ringed octopus contains enough TTX to kill up to 26 humans within minutes and the TTX is thousands of times more potent than cyanide the threat here is real but what makes them so toxic will be cool and that they don't make their own venom they use other organisms bacteria they find out here and they hide them in their saliva glands number two saltwater crocodile fear the crocodile for it strikes when you least expect it as the name suggests the saltwater crocodile can very easily traverse open waters allowing them to spread across Southeast Asia with terrifying ease if I can get into your bathtub they'll get into it yeah they'll just about go anywhere saltwater crocodiles are reported to have a bite power ten times greater than that of the great white shark at the very least its large size and weight make it frightening ly easy to trap its prey easy mix during a battle in World War two hundreds of Japanese soldiers crossing through swampland in Myanmar were reportedly killed by saltwater crocodiles stuff like this gives us pause this is our modern-day dinosaur the ruler of this entire territory this is my reason for being here before we unveil our number one pick here are some honorable mentions when some cone snails go hunting they like to burrow into the sand and wait when a meal happens by the cone snail fires its harpoon the poisons quickly paralyze the fish a single man of war is a deadly hunter but man of wars are known to gather in swarms of thousands making they're part of the sea a dangerous place to be number one box jellyfish doesn't look like much translucent blob of goo but it can see it can sense that you're there and has some of the most toxic venom in the world when it comes to the dangers of the sea size matters not hence we have the box jellyfish a class of jellyfish that compensates for its small stature with a largely unparalleled sting suppose you're gonna tell me the scariest animal is a shark try box jellyfish those subjected to the venomous touch of the box jellyfish as tentacles are set to undergo extreme pain and a burning feeling box jellyfish venom is reportedly so potent that some people experience fatal cardiac arrest within minutes of being stung the worst part is how hard it is to detect a box jellyfish before it can cause harm due to its almost transparent appearance pudding maladies misery will give we'll give him some some of this stuff here some vinegar have it not and you can be liberal with it
