Have you ever wondered how dangerous some animals are? Or how many of those dangerous animals live in your backyard? Here are the four most DEADLY animals and insects that live in Alabama.
1. Cottonmouth Snake
Cottonmouth snakes are super dangerous because it only takes 11 bites for them to kill you. This species usually hang around swamps, marshes, lakes, and basically everywhere that’s fresh water.
2. Black Widow
The black widow may look beautiful and elegant, but you should probably keep your distance when looking. It can kill you with as little as 31 bites. So you better watch out, especially since they’re everywhere.
Reader Bill Greene would like you to know that the cottonmouth and the black widow can kill you with only one bite if proper medical treatment is not administered.
3. Fire Ants
Ha, you’re thinking, there’s no way a little ant like that can kill me! But you are gladly mistaken sir. For this little ant can kill you in just 24 bites. Especially since fire ants always fight predators in groups.
Scorpions are not as powerful as a fire ant, but then again scorpions usually travel alone. The scorpion can kill any predator in 196 stings. You can find these terrible creatures dessert like places.
And that’s all four of the most dangerous animals that live in Alabama. Go to this link here to find more dangerous animals in Alabama. Hopefully you won’t get stung or bit by any of these animals.
