    7) Stonefish -- The MOST venomous fish in the world!!! While snorkeling off the island of Gili Nanggu, Lombok, Indonesia, I kept diving down to get a closer look at this very strange looking fish. After coming back to review my images, I researched this fish and realized how lucky I was not to have accidentally touched or stepped on it.

    9) African White-Backed Vulture -- South Africa
    10) Playful African Elephant -- South Africa
