The poison from the skin of the world's most poisonous known creature-the tiny, 1.5-inch, Golden Poison Frog (Phyllobates terribilis) can kill a monkey.
An average P. terribilis contains about one milligram of poison, which is enough to kill 10,000 mice-perhaps enough to kill 10 to 20 humans if the poison reaches their bloodstreams.
This extraordinarily lethal poison (a steroid alkaloid, called batrachotoxin) almost does not occur in nature. We have found this poison only among three poison frogs in Colombia and two poison birds in Papua, New Guinea.
The yellow frog stores the poison in skin glands, as do most frogs. Due to their poison, frogs taste awful to predators but P. terribilis' poison kills whatever eats it-except for a snake (Liophis epinephelus). This snake is resistant to the frog's poison but not immune.

Man. I am not joking. Really it is only the man who spreads hatred everywhere because ofwhich we see everyday and in everywalk of life, terror everywhere. Man killing man. Any creature will not hit or bite anybody unless it feels it is being attacked. It is only a preventive action unlike the human being who just do mindlessly.

Humans are te most venomous. as they por venom at the slightest pretext, with out nay provocation . the animals and reptiles use venom as a defence mechansim to save themselves from the preceived danger and that too when provoked. humans can and do use thier venom on every body and anybody.
