Think those lizards and turtles are cute? Think again...they can be just as dangerous as pythons, alligators and crocs! 

You see, hundreds of species of reptiles have been around for centuries. And while most are not harmful, this quiz will show you 50 that are so dangerous, you'll want to think twice before stepping any closer. From the green iguana to the gaboon viper, we'll show you the Gila monster and forest cobra! Each of these reptiles has their own way of protecting themselves and their own way of hunting prey. Don't worry though, most aren't interested in eating humans (alligators and crocodiles excluded!). All, however, are out to protect their territory and their young. If you advance or find yourself stepping into their space, you better be ready for the consequences! They may not be the fastest, but they can certainly be the strongest. They may not be the biggest, but their venom...well that can be the deadliest! Your best bet? Stay clear!

So, do you think you are brave enough to take this quiz? Or will these dangerous scaly creatures rattle you? It's time to leave the safety of your couch and travel to these risky reptile territories across the world! Good luck!
