However much you love spiders, snakes and bugs, you know there will be a creepy crawly that will make you a little squeamish, because you know that's the one you really should fear. Will it be a spider? Perhaps a snake? Or can you imagine slipping on a pair of shoes only to feel the sliminess of a frog squirming around? 

The eerie feeling most of us experience in coming face-to-face with any of these creatures is usually unfounded, but it's still rooted in the fact that they might be poisonous. While many of these creatures are harmless, others may cause a skin irritation or much much worse.

How well do you think you know your poisonous creatures? You know that a boa has a tight squeeze, but does it have a venomous bite to go along with it? You might like how the shell of a marbled cone snail would look hanging from your neck, but is it worth it to pick one up? 

This quiz will tell you if you can go hiking on your own, or if you need to carry a backpack of anti-venom. It's a quiz for the daring, the adventuresome and best of all it's for you. Do you think you can handle it?
