    There are a lot of ways to kill and be killed in the animal kingdom, but only a lucky few use the powers of venom. Not all are closely related, so how did they acquire the same defenses, where did venom come from, and how does it work? And what animals can kill you the most quickly? Find the answers to these questions, and more, in today's episode of SciShow.

Centipedes and scorpions 400 million years ago? If memory serves, Earth didn't even have similar oxygen content in its atmosphere to today until about 300 million years ago, so how could any land animals exist before that? Edit: Also, 8:33 you pronounce priapism incorrectly. Long I. It's pri- like French Fry, not pri- like free.

The Golden Dart Frog is Not venomous,it's poisonous. Yes,there is a big difference. A man can swallow a few drops of snake venom with no ill effects other than possible stomach cramps and diarrhea,as long as that man has no ulcers. Swallowing a few drops of poison usually doesn't go so well.

Paracelsus is mostly right, but there are exceptions, compounds for which there is no safe dose, and which accumulate in the body ensuring that even if you're exposed to a low dose that doesn't immediately harm you, if you are exposed again and again over the years, those low doses can build up and cause significant harm. Heavy metals like Lead and Mercury are good examples of this, which is why even low levels of lead in municipal water supplies are concerning.

Venomous creatures kill by sting or bite, and poisonous creatures kill you when you eat or touch them, or you make contact with their secretions.

Australia has an OVER abundance of marine stingers the worst of the jellies is the irukanji which is about the size of your thumbnail but punches way above its weight as far as lethality, then just a bit bigger is chaironex fleccii, nearly as deadly but easier to see. And then there are the cone shells that actually shoot deadly little darts called radulae into the unwary tourist (mainly) who pick them up "because they're so pretty", yeah, and they'll make you pretty DEAD pretty damn quick! And if that weren't scary enough, THERE'S NO ANTIDOTE FOR ANY OF THEM! they paralyze you, including your diaphragm so not only will you die of suffocation, with the jellies you'll die in excruciating pain that the strongest opoids can't relieve! Welcome to Australia mate!

PSA: If you get mad or annoyed by people mixing up the terms "venom" and "poison", then you are a pedantic douchebag. And, you should get professional help to overcome your pedantry. "Venom" vs. "poison" is a TECHNICAL distinction, relevant in specific contexts. For everyday people, they're both "substances that make you sick or kill you if they get inside you", so if you overhear two lay persons casually refer to a snake's venom as "poison", then you should not think anything of it.
