                     SMALL BUT DANGEROUS

Tarantula hawks are named for the fact that they hunt 
tarantulas as food for their larvae. It's sting is rated 
as one of the most painful in the world. One researcher 
described the sting as causing immediate, excruciating 
pain that simply shuts down one's ability to do anything, 
except, perhaps, scream. The Tarantula Hawk is the 
official state insect of New Mexico.

                             *** 

The Deathstalker is a species of scorpion that is highly 
dangerous because of its venom. The venom is actually a 
powerful mixture of neurotoxins. Although, the poison 
would not kill a healthy adult, it could be fatal to kids 
and the elderly. Ironically, a component of the venom has 
the potential to cure human brain tumors while the other 
toxins may help against diabetes.

                             *** 

A bite from a Bullet ant will not kill you, but you will 
never forget it. The Bullet ant (thus named because a bite 
feels like being shot) inflicts the most painful bite of 
any creature known to man. It is described as causing waves 
of burning, throbbing, all-consuming pain that continues 
unabated for up to 24 hours.
