Toxic creatures can be found almost anywhere—in the woods, in the desert, in your own backyard . . . even in your room!
Some, such as poison dart frogs and puffer fish, have poisonous skin or other organs. Others are venomous—they have stingers, spines, or fangs to injects their toxins.
You know some of them already: black widow spiders, killer bees, rattlesnakes, stingrays, and scorpions. There are lots of other toxic species, too.
Just take a look inside . . . if you dare!
