5 Most venomous animals in the world

Most animals are fascinating creatures but there are some out there you wouldn’t want to spend too much time with.
These are the 5 most venomous animals with number one being the most venomous.

Death Stalker Scorpion
Although the death scorpion can’t generally kill a healthy adult human their venom is full of neurotoxins that can cause some nasty side effects such as cramping, convulsions, unbearable pain, and a fever. The side effects can kill young children, those in old age or those who have a health condition such as a heart failure.
Rest assured you do not find the Stalker Scorpion in the United Kingdom, as they are mostly found in North Africa and the Middle East.

Death Stalker Scorpion

Blue-Ringed Octopus
For a tiny creature which is only the size of a golf ball, the blue-ringed octopus can certainly pack some punch with its venom.
Would you believe it this little creature carries enough venom to kill up to 26 adult humans within as little as a few minutes.
The neurotoxins after its bite work very quickly to carry through the blood stream causing weakened muscles, numbness to all parts of the body, followed by the slowing down of breathing and then death.
But rest assured you don’t need to worry about coming across one of these rather pleasant creatures when you go skinny dipping in the Bournemouth sea as they live mainly from the pacific ocean from Australia to Japan.

Blue-Ringed Octupus

Marbled Cone Snail
When you think of snails, most people think of them being slimy, gooey and docile creatures. Not all are as pleasant as they may seem.
The Marbled Cone Snail looks very pretty and harmless and most can be with hundreds of different species. This being said these tricky little suckers are not what they seem.
The most venomous of the species can kill up to 20 adult humans. Yes you read that right that’s 20.
Cone snails use a hypodermic-like modified radula tooth and a venom gland which if penetrated into your blood stream can cause intense pain, swelling, numbness and then the more vital cases leading to muscle paralysis, distorted vision, respiratory failure and eventually death.
Have no fear these little critters prefer warmer sees and are not really found in the cold  seas around the United Kingdom.

Marbled Cone Snail

The King Cobra
As you would guess the king cobra is near the top of the list being number 2 of the most venomous creatures in the world.
With all its ducking and diving and bobbing and weaving, this slippery devil can kill you when it eventually strikes with one bite.
The King Cobra can amazingly kill an animal the size of an elephant within 3 hours of its bite, if bitten in a vulnerable area. Who would have thought?
So our advice if you see a King Cobra would be to run for the hills before he gets you.

King Cobra

Box Jelly Fish
And number one of course is the box jelly fish. With its famous appearance in the film Seven Pounds, we all know how deadly these creatures can be.
Its venom quickly attacks the heart, the nervous system and the skin cells, and its effects almost fatal if not treated quickly.
The Box Jelly Fish prefers to be in the waters around Asia and Australia rather than the murky waters of the Solent, so I don’t think you need to worry about finding one in this country any time soon.

Box Jelly Fish

So there it is the 5 most venomous animals. We at PB Animal Adventures can’t bring you super venomous animals like these to your children’s parties, however we can bring animals that are just as exciting and fascinating.

What makes a good birthday party for kids?

The question every parent asks themselves when their childs birthday party fast approaches is “how do I make my childs party stand out?”.

These are 10 very simple suggestions that may help:

1) Fill your childs bedroom with balloons and streamers, so they have a big surprise when they wake up in the morning and know it’s a special day for them, getting them all exited in time for their birthday party.

Balloons in Bedroom


2) Pick a theme with your child for the party that will stand out from the rest such as an animal encounter, pirates, princesses etc. It’s always good to consider a theme that fits in with most age ranges such as an animal encounter etc, so that all children attending can get involved.

3) Make sure everyone knows all about the party by choosing the date, where you are holding the party, what the theme is, what time the party starts and then getting the invitations out as soon as possible, as we all know how busy parents and their children schedules are. Facebook is becoming an ever increasing way to get word out there about your childs party.

4) Design and make the invitations with your child, so they are individual to you and stand out.

5) Put up loads of decorations around the party venue. It’s always good to decorate the venue around the theme of your party and even better if you and your child have made the decorations, making your party stick out from the rest.

Party decorations

6) Every party has party favours that are usually the same old party bags handed out to the children at the end of the party. Why not change things up a bit by getting the children to make their party favours as an interactive activity at the party.

7) No party is complete without good party grub yum yum. Why not tailor your food around the theme of your party for example you may have animal shaped sandwiches if you have booked an animal encounter for your party. Of course the piece de resistance would be the birthday cake, which can also be tailored to match the theme of the party.

8) Plan some party games that fit in with your theme such as pin the tail on the donkey or sleeping lions for an animal themed party etc. If your childs party has children in various aged groups, it would be suggested prizes are available for all of these age groups.

Party games


9) Set aside a quieter time at the party for your child to open presents and say thank you to everyone one that has bought them something.



10) Last but not least, the party has been planned with meticulous precision, your child and all the other children are happy and enjoying themselves, everything is going to plan, so all that’s left to do is relax, enjoy the experience and most importantly have fun.
