At only 1.5 inches long, the Golden Poison Frog is known to be the most poisonous creature on earth. It lives on the Pacific coast of Colombia. The frog’s poison prevents nerves from transmitting impulses in its victim, leaving the muscles in an inactive state of contraction. This can lead to heart failure or fibrillation.
The golden poison dart frog, or terribilis, contains enough to poison to kill 10 people. Here is a list of the runners up: http://yourscienceblog.blogspot.com/2008/02/top-eight-8-most-poisonous-animals.html
