#21 – Deathstalker
This scorpion, as creepy-looking as its name implies, is the most dangerous species of scorpion there is. It has a powerful venom and it doesn’t take a lot to kill. It is primarily found in North Africa and the Middle East so be aware if you’re traveling there.
The “good news” is that adults are at less risk as they have more time to seek out medical help to get the antidote. Children, on the other hand, can die in an hour if the antidote is not given to them. The toxin of this scorpion causes fever, convulsions, coma, and eventually, death.
