Top Ten Animals and Plants that Can Sting

Some stings are very painful and unbearable and some last long, so be careful with them. Whatever you do, don't get too close

The Top Ten

1 Gympie-Gympie

So painful and unbearable and can last for a year that some people commit suicide after getting stung (which is how it got its nickname; "suicide plant"), like a soldier who shot himself after using the leaf for toilet paper. Despite that, some animal species can eat it - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

2 Bee

Especially the Africanized honey bee, which has a painful and sometimes fatal sting and this bee is also very aggresive and will chase the one who disturbed it until up to 400m - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

3 Jellyfish Jellyfish

Some can be fatal, like the box jellyfish - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

4 Portuguese Man o' War

Before you say "But you already put jellyfish on this list", it's not a jellyfish. It's a siphonophore - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

5 Stonefish Stonefish

One of the most venomous fish. Not only that it has a painful and venomous sting, but it can blend perfectly with rocks. Be careful when stepping on a rock on the beach/sea - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

6 Glaucus Atlanticus Glaucus Atlanticus Glaucus atlanticus is a species of small, blue sea slug, a pelagic aeolid nudibranch, a shell-less gastropod mollusk in the family Glaucidae.

Sometimes beauty is dangerous. The sting is similar to a Portuguese Man o' War's because it feeds on them - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

7 Wasp

When I saw a tarantula hawk in my backyard, I knew it would not be the thing to mess with. The Schmidt Pain Index says its sting feels like bold, electric pain.

8 Cone Snail
9 Stinging Nettle

Name says it all. Despite that, it can be consumed and used as medicine - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

10 Hornet Hornet

The Contenders

11 Bullet Ant

The most painful insect sting.
