the pigmy shrew is the smallest mammal in north america. thats all i really know, but i hope it helps in some way :)
Fur seals have about 70,000 hairs per square centimetre. They probably have the most hairs overall.

After all, not everyone can be the belle of the ball!There are many beautiful animals in this world, but some are incredibly unfortunate-looking. Despite their looks, these animals have fascinating habits and are crucial to the world's ecology. After all, not everyone can be the belle of the ball!The blobfish lives off the coast of Australia. Its body is a slimy, gelatinous mass that lacks any kind of muscle tone. In September 2013, the blobfish won the distinction of being the 'World's Ugliest Animal' from the Ugly Animal Preservation Society. Here, here!The proboscis monkey is one of the most recognizable animals in the world, thanks to its gigantic nose. The males have larger noses than females. Because of this trait, it is not often up to par with "cute" animal standards.The naked mole rat has a face only a mother (or a "Kim Possible" fan) could love. What this tiny creature lacks the hair of other rats it makes up for in buck teeth size, and and due to its bald appearance, it has very low self-esteem. It is kinda ugly-cute, though.Warthogs are large, hairy members of the pig family native to Africa. They are well-adapted to their environment and their looks don't seem to get in the way of their lifestyle. While seemingly adorable in animated form (like Pumbaa from "The Lion King"), the warthog isn't commonly thought as the cutest breed of the pig family. We're afraid "Babe" probably won that distinguished title.Elephant seals have long, floppy noses, and despite their large size, are remarkably fast. They use their trunks to make noises to communicate and can run faster than humans.Red-lipped batfish don't have a lot going for them in the looks department. They have oddly shaped bodies and bright red lips, and don't really have a look about them that makes you want to get all up in that for a good snuggle. They use their dorsal fins to attract prey, not for swimming.The star-nosed mole has 22 pink appendages on its face that it uses to identify prey. Despite its ugly appearance, this mole is only about the size of a hamster and no threat to humanity. Unless a person would know this, however, we can understand why the animal's appearance may be found frightening or at least worth avoiding.The California condor is a rare North American bird that lives along the West Coast. It looks majestic when you see it flying overhead, but up close, it's not a very pretty bird. Cher Horowitz from "Clueless" would probably consider this Cali bird a Monet, if you catch our drift.Despite its vicious appearance, the viperfish only grows to be about 12 inches long. It has large teeth protruding from its mouth and eats small fish and crustaceans. Definitely not an animal that'll make you feel warm fuzzies.Anglerfish troll at the bottom of the ocean for food. Besides their long, sharp teeth, they have a spine that they use as bait for prey. They are some of the most ferocious - and unfortunate looking - in the entire ocean. (MORE)
What do you think is the most dangerous animal? Lions? Bears? Sharks? Going by how many people are killed by an animal per year, these are the most dangerous animals in the wo…rld. We guarantee you'll be surprised by what animals made the list.With all those razor sharp rows of teeth, sharks definitely have that incredibly vicious look. But compared to some of the other animals on this list, sharks almost seem docile. Sharks kill about 10 people per year.It's probably no surprise that wolves made it on the list, but what probably is surprising is the number of deaths they cause. Wolves are reported to kill about 10 people per year.While some species of lions are more hostile toward humans than others, lions don't usually attack humans. This explains why lions aren't higher on this list. Lions kill approximately 100 people every year.You may not believe it, but elephants kill 10 times more people per year than sharks or wolves. While it is reported that they kill about 100 people per year, according to the World Wildlife Foundation, its possible that the number could be even higher in India alone.Hippos are known to be very aggressive, which is a direct contradiction to their seemingly laid back demeanor. Hippos kill about 500 people per year.Crocodiles account for nearly 1,000 deaths a year. Most of these deaths occur in Australia, but it's still a somewhat rare occurrence.These tiny creatures are known to kill about 2,000 people per year. That's double the amount of deaths than crocodiles cause! These parasites cause infections that aren't normally deadly in developed countries, but are in third world countries.Like tapeworms, ascaris roundworms cause infections and mature from eggs or larvae within the body. Problems become the most severe when these parasites get up to a foot long and infest the body. Most infections occur in children living in tropical or subtropical regions. Ascaris roundworms are estimated to kill 2,500 people per year.Probably the most surprising animal on this list, the freshwater snail kills nearly 10,000 people every year. These snails contaminate freshwater by spreading schistosomiasis (the 2nd most common parasitic disease in the world).The triatomine bug is this bug's real name, but people refer to them as assassin bugs because their bites are so deadly. These bugs carry parasites that can cause chagas disease or deadly allergic reactions. These bugs tote a death toll of about 10,000.Most people probably wouldn't consider flies or bugs as animals, but they are. The tsetse fly spreads disease like the assassin bug and kills about the same number of people every year (10,000).Your household dog won't kill you, but a rabid dog will. Rabies is almost 100% fatal if not treated and dogs cause about 90% of human exposure to the disease. Developing countries have a hard time dealing with these infections due to the lack of the availability of vaccines in those countries. Dogs cause about 25,000 human deaths.In America alone, 8,000 people are bitten by venomous snakes every year. Although this is true, only 10 deaths occur annually. Like with diseases, the real problem resides in developing countries where access to antivenom isn't as readily available. Snakes are responsible for 50,000 deaths per year.Yes, humans are animals too. Humans kill an estimated 475,000 people every year. Really we're are own worst enemy.Coming in at number one is mosquitoes. Mosquitoes themselves don't kill people but the diseases they share with us do like malaria or west nile virus. Mosquitoes are the cause of 725,000 deaths world wide. (MORE)

In Well Being
While cuddly puppies and kittens are the objects of affection for many animal lovers, there are plenty of other creatures that are less friendly and much more dangerous. In fa…ct, nature has seen fit to provide many seemingly defenseless or otherwise unassuming animals with the means to fatally incapacitate much larger adversaries, including humans. These are the animals that are able to utilize poisonous venom as a defense mechanism. Consequently, these are the creatures that people generally want to avoid at all cost. The following are a just a few of the most venomous animals on the planet.Don't let its colorful and dazzling shell fool you. While it has the unthreatening speed and appearance of...well, a snail, this little guy is actually one of the most dangerous creatures in the oceans. By most estimates, a just a single drop of its venom is potent enough to kill 20 people. Even worse, if you happen to run afoul of this particular aquatic resident, there is no known antidote for the venom it utilizes. Death is quick.Sticking with an aquatic theme, you also have to look out for the stonefish. A rather unattractive creature, its hide has evolved to resemble the natural coral surroundings that it typically hides within, making it easy enough to step on if you are unawares. This would be bad news, however, as its spines contain potent venom, which if it doesn't kill you outright, it will probably result in the loss of the infected limb. A rather unassuming animal insofar as snakes are concerned, the black mamba is actually slithering death. With a venomous bite that is lethal to humans and prey alike, this is a snake that you do not want to come into contact with. Not only is it incredibly fast, it is also known to attack without warning; meaning it will come after you without being provoked. Honestly, one of the most beautiful amphibians you are likely to encounter, the rich colors of this frog are breathtaking. And like a Picasso, all you will want to do with this particular animal is look. That's because its skin is saturated with a highly toxic poison. Despite its very small size, this is an animal that can take down any animal that may have a thought of touching it, much less eating it.Jellyfish are well-known for their poisonous sting and the Box Jellyfish is the most dangerous culprit. Keep this in mind: the box jellyfish is responsible for more deaths than the combined efforts of crocs, stonefish and sharks. The venom the box jellyfish utilizes is so potent, there is often not enough time to receive any treatment before your heart stops beating. This is a creature that you don't want to confuse with your everyday garden snake. While this is not an aggressive snake and will usually have to feel threatened before it will attack humans, if cornered it has a lethal bite. Interestingly, the venom it uses is not a type that causes cardiac or respiratory failure. Instead, it's a kind of hemotoxin that prevents blood from clotting, causing its victim to literally bleed out over a period of time.Much in the same manner as the dart frog, the poisonous nature of the pufferfish is to prevent it from being prey to other animals. This has resulted in this particular fish being regarded as the second most poisonous vertebrae in the world. Ironically, despite this hazard, pufferfish are regarded as a delicacy dish in various parts of the world. Nevertheless, if improperly cleaned, the poison of this fish will shut down the diaphragm, causing respiratory failure. Another deadly aquatic creature, the blue-ringed octopus is a small ball of potential death. By small, we mean as in about the size of a ping-pong ball. On top of that, it's colorfully adorned, so if you see it, you might have an inclination to reach out and touch it. This would be a mistake, as this little guy has enough poison to kill well over 20 people. Once the venom enters the body, it will induce paralysis and you will not be able to breathe on your own. With a name like 'deathstalker', you probably would prefer not to run across this particular creature if you can avoid doing so. This scorpion carries a fairly potent venom in its stinger and is the cause of the majority of scorpion related fatalities. A sting is survivable by an adult, but can be fatal to small children. Considered to be the most venomous snake in the world, this creature has a bite with enough venom to fatally take down 100 grown humans. For a clearer perception - If you considered a cobra's venom to be poisonous, then you should know that an inland taipan's bite is several hundred times more toxic. Found primarily in the Australian interior, this snake is not particularly aggressive and will usually find itself cornered before it will attack humans. (MORE)
It is a very common behavior to eat when you are not hungry. While this habit may not negatively affect someone who does not need to lose weight, as a person who wants to drop… some pounds, eating when not hungry can and does affect your weight. (MORE)
One of the biggest struggles with losing weight is finding high quality, easy foods for lunch or dinner when you are too tired to cook. Often, you can find yourself turning to… fast food or convenience foods. TV frozen dinners are another alternative. While they are not always thought of as healthy, Hungry-Man dinners can be a convenient way to enjoy a satisfying dinner. Before you microwave dinner and enjoy a hearty meal, however, you should do your homework into what you are consuming. Are Hungry-Man dinners going to help or hinder your progress on your weight loss journey?Hungry-Man dinners are popular choices for individuals seeking to satisfy their large appetites. They can be prepared in just minutes, making them easy and convenient meals for any time of the day.

Furthermore, the portions are well known because they can satisfy any size of appetite. Hungry-Man dinners tend to cost about $4 per package, but on the bright side, these TV dinners consist of at least one pound of food per package.Hungry Man dinners are large and thus more satisfying than most microwave entrees. This means you can make an entire meal without being hungry a few hours later after eating. These packages offer up a complete meal, which usually consists of meat and vegetables such as steak with potatoes or corn. Moreover, Hungry-Man dinners offer good portions and a wide range of options for individuals looking to spice up their meals for lunch or dinner.Most of the options are similar in that the meals are likely to consist of breaded meat and fried foods such as chicken or potatoes. While this offers a nutritious and balanced meal, it is not necessarily friendly to weight loss. In specific, the meals are high in starch and carbohydrates, while lacking leafy greens and whole grains that are essential for weight loss. Thus, while a Hungry Man dinner is certainly healthier than a fast-food alternative, it should not be a go-to meal when working towards achieving weight loss.Hungry-Man dinners offer a tasty and convenient meal that is guaranteed to always be able to fill you up. When you are trying to lose weight, this can be invaluable especially after a long, strenuous day of work. However, these meals are not appropriate for individuals who are following strict diets. In particular, these frozen TV dinners are filled with fatty foods and not conducive to your weight loss plan. As a result, you should be consuming Hungry-Man dinners on a regular basis. Instead, you want to do so sparingly to ensure that you maintain your healthy eating habits and lifestyle.If you find yourself turning to Hungry-Man dinners, make sure to choose the healthiest option. With this in mind, skip the battered chicken dishes and choose lean steak or fish entrees instead. As a result, you will be satisfied, but you will not be ingesting unnecessary, empty calories.

Now by venomous do you mean most potent, or most prominant? Most prominant would be the King Cobra. "One single bite of this deadly snake can easily kill a human. This sna…ke is even capable of killing a full-grown Asian Elephant within 3 hours if the larger animal is bitten in a vulnerable area such as the trunk. It's venom is not as toxic as other venomous snakes, but King Cobra is capable of injecting 5 times more venom than black mamba and can result in mortality up to 5 times faster than that of the black mamba. It is quite widespread, ranging across South and South-east Asia, living in dense highland forests." Most Potent would have to be The Golden Poison Frog "The Golden Poison Frog (Phyllobates terribilis) carries only one mg of poison, yet can still kill up to 20 people." (MORE)
