The world's most VENOMOUS animal: Box Jellyfish a.k.a. Sea Wasp. Their venom is considered to be among the most deadly in the world, containing toxins that attack the heart, nervous system, and skin cells. It is so overpoweringly painful, human victims have been known to go into shock and drown or die of heart failure before even reaching shore. Survivors can experience considerable pain for weeks and often have significant scarring where the tentacles made contact. Sea turtles are unaffected by the venom and generally eat them. The world's most POISONOUS animal: Golden Poison Frog a.k.a. Golden Dart Frog. The golden poison frog is generally estimated to contain about one milligram of poison, enough to kill about 10,000 mice. This estimate will vary in turn, but most agree that this dose is enough to kill between 10 and 20 humans, which correlates to up to two African bull elephants. This is roughly 15,000 humans per gram. Snakes are unaffected by the poison, but not totally immune.
This is a great answer.
