Florida is Home To The World's 'Most Dangerous' Tree

If there's one tree you want to completely avoid, it's this one!

You could be left completely blind. According to the Guinness World Records, this tree, found in Florida, is the world's most dangerous tree.

The manchineel tree (Hippomane mancinella) can be found in the Florida Everglades and the Caribbean coast.

Those fruits hanging from the tree may look tasty, but if you see this tree, STAY AWAY. One bite of those fruits can cause blisters, pain, and could potentially be fatal.

The sap that the tree’s trunk exudes is reportedly so incredibly poisonous and acidic that even the smallest contact with human skin can cause an immediate breakout of blisters.

If you get the sap in your eyes or are around smoke from burning the tree, blindness can also be a result.
