Have you ever experienced a painful attack, bite, or sting?
Most people will experience massive amounts of pain from one or two of these throughout their lives. It helps to learn more about potential attacks beforehand so you can do your best to avoid them altogether.
That’s why we made a complete guide on surviving wild animal attacks you can see listed in the conclusion section of this article.
For this post, we’re going to explore the most painful experiences from animals known to man. This list doesn’t just cover the most excruciating attacks you could experience, we included bites and stings as well.
Any normal person would rather avoid getting bitten by any snake, especially this kind of snake. The Viper has one of the most painful bites that you can experience.
The pain of this bite was discussed in an article from MSN. The article made a good point about pain. The pain from the bite, although it is painful, still isn’t the worst symptom that you may experience from the bite. Aside from the pain of massive fangs piercing your flesh, you may also experience hallucinations and even numbness in your limbs from the toxins.
Coming in at number ten on our list is the Crocodile.
It’s 100 times more deadly than a Shark as the crocodile kills more than 1000 people a year.
What makes the crocodile bite so painful is the way their physiology is. Their jaws are formed in such a way that it doesn’t allow them to actually chew their food as other animals do.
With this being the case, they are forced to do other things that just happen to be much more painful than a bite would be.
Crocodiles will tear and rip big chunks of their prey after locking their jaws onto them. If you’ve seen any video of a crocodile attacking its prey, you’ve seen what is known as the “death roll”. It’s hands down one of the most brutal attacks in the entire animal kingdom.
Once the croc clenches its jaws, it’s victim won’t see another day.
