Chironex fleckeri, a species of box jellyfish, is widely considered the most venomous animal. Its sting is capable of killing sixty adults in just three minutes.

Also known by the names marine stinger or sea wasp, it is found off the Northern coast of Australia.
There are many things to determine when you talk about the toxicity of different animals. Different people react in different ways for the most part. The most venomous animal should be listed into categories For example: The most venomous fish is the stone fish. The thing about that is, is that it is passively venomous, meaning that it uses it's venom in defense, not to attack. In fact, it has the same venom as the duck billed platypus, which is not lethal, it just causes massive pain and swelling. Stonustoxin. Now, actively venomous animals, such as snakes and spiders use their venom to kill or subdue prey. The most venomous snake is arguably the banded sea snake. It has the most toxic venom; however, it doesn't bite often, isn't aggressive, and hard to come across. The most venomous spider is the male Sydney funnel web spider. It has Attraxotoxin that speeds up the organs functions and causes the body to overdrive itself to death. Overall though, the most venomous animal, that has been known to kill anyone of any shape, size, or age, is the BOX JELLYFISH. Due to it's cardiotoxin, that attacks the heart directly through the blood stream, and it's stinging celled organisms, nematysits, it is considered the most lethal venomous animal. Understand that venomous animals INJECT venom through spurs, fangs, stingers, barbs, etc... Poisonous animals have toxins that must be absorbed, ingested or inhaled.

Chironex fleckeri, also known as the Box jellyfish, or Sea Wasp IS the most venomous organism on the planet. The Frog that you're talking about is propably the Golden Dart Frog. Well, the thing is that Frogs don't use venom, they use Batracitoxins, a form of poison. Even though people say that poison and venom are exactly the same, they are not; they are almost completely different.
