The deadliest one of all is the Human!

Someone said this
Deaths by Jellyfish 4 in the last 20 years
Deaths by spider bite 0 in the last 20 years
Deaths by snake 40 in the last 33 years
Death by crocodile roughly 1 a year
Death by octopus 3 in the last 100 years
Death by cone snail 0
Death by shark 2 a year

On the other hand
Deaths in horse riding accidents 20 a year
Deaths by bee allergy 10 per year
Death by drowning 300

This person forgot to put in Deaths by wars thousands every year.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Carrie because you have done so within the last day.
