Can this puffer fish kill you?

Yes! The puffer fish is the second most poisonous vertebrate on the planet. The poison of a puffer fish, which has no antidote, kills by paralyzing the diaphragm, causing suffocation.

Can this aye-aye kill you?
x
No! Perhaps due to their appearance, these gentle, harmless animals are often killed because of a local superstition that aye-ayes are harbingers of death. Some believe that if an aye-aye points its middle finger at you, it's a death sentence. None of this is true, of course. These primates are peaceful, nocturnal foragers

Can this basking shark kill you?

No! Unlike their carnivorous brethren, basking sharks are filter feeders. They prefer the taste of zooplankton and couldn't chomp down on you if they wanted to. A diver lucky enough to encounter one of these elegant beasts may entice its playful curiosity; they are known to be tolerant of nearby boats and people.

Can this cassowary kill you?
x
Yes! The cassowary prefers to keep a low profile, but when disturbed this flightless bird can become extremely aggressive and territorial. Capable of running and leaping at high speeds, the cassowary attacks by thrusting its large claws forward with the aim of disemboweling its target.

No! Despite the goliath birdeater's appearance, the size of its fangs and its reputation, this spider is entirely harmless and passive toward humans — as are the vast majority of tarantulas around the world. The spiders do have venom, but their bite would hardly compare to the sting of a wasp.

Can this gharial kill you?

No! the gharial's thin jaws are fragile and incapable of consuming a large animal. Better adapted for hunting small fish, frogs and insects, gharials prefer to avoid people entirely. Of course, you wouldn't want to place your finger inside its mouth, but aside from complete carelessness, these giant reptiles are totally harmless.

Can this milk snake kill you?

No! Milk snakes are completely harmless and can often tolerate being handled without showing much aggression. (Just make sure the snake you're handling is, in fact, a milk snake and not a coral snake!) It's best to remember this handy mnemonic, which clarifies the subtle differences in color patterns between the two species: "Red next to black is a friend of Jack; red next to yellow will kill a fellow".

No! In fact, the giant African millipede is kept as a family pet in many parts of the world. These millipedes can grow to as long as 15 inches, can be nearly 4 inches thick and have 253 legs. (For people who love them, these characteristics are described as "cute".) These millipedes can live as long as 10 years, and despite their goosebump-inducing appearance, they are harmless.

Yes! Some diseases carried by monkeys and apes can be easily transmitted to humans. Even a small monkey can bite, potentially transmitting a virus like hepatitis C. Larger apes, such as chimpanzees, orangutans and gorillas are powerful animals capable of mauling a human if they feel threatened.
