25 Most Dangerous Animals of 2017

#17 – Stonefish

The existence of this little, ugly being is another reason for you not to touch anything you find on the ocean floor that reminds you of a stone. This creature camouflages itself as a rock and hides within actual rocks to stalk its prey. Also, you will never walk on what you think are ocean stones again because if it turns out to be the back of a Stonefish, it could kill you in minutes.
