The Earth is full of animals and plants we would love to touch. It can be very tempting to want to reach out and pet a zebra or pick a flower, but there are some creatures out there that you should never touch. We’ve compiled a list of 30 plants and animals you should never ever touch, for your safety and theirs.
20. Puss Moth
When you see a beautiful bug, you’ll want to pet it. We certainly share that desire over here. However, we’ll have to fight those urges if we see a puss moth. These moths are found in North America, and they’re covered in poisonous hairs. The larva’s gorgeous fur is, in fact, a concealed collection of spikes that are meant to maim and kill. When these are pricked, they produce an excruciating agony in the region where the stings were inserted. The agony will only get worse with time. Difficulty breathing, as well as other symptoms such as headache and queasiness, might be caused by your body’s reaction. We’d advise you to avoid it.
