By aggressive I mean animals which can be provoked easily and will attack without warning. Not necessarily to humans, it can be any animal including others of its own species.

The Top Ten

1 Hippopotamus Hippopotamus The common hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus.

Strangely Hippos are too violent. Much more violent than Crocodiles. Lions will attack only if you're too close or if they are very hungry. Hippos won't mind chasing you the split second they catch the glimpse of yours. - Kiteretsunu

Hippos are extremely territorial, don't get close or they may charge at you and impale you on their 2 foot long canines.
Males will often lock mouths with each other in a fight for a pod of females and females will fight in order to protect their calves. Hippos kill over 500 people per year due to the short temper they possess. - Cazaam

2 Elephant Elephant Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Two species are traditionally recognized, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species.

Similar to the hippo, just bigger, slower and lacks the canines preferring tusks that can grow up to 3 metres long. - Cazaam

Male elephants are pretty aggressive in the mating season

They're gentle giants but do attack

3 Killer Whale Killer Whale The killer whale or orca is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family, of which it is the largest member.

Sharks seem to fear the Killer whale and for good reason. Killer whales have been known to kill sharks. They will try extremely hard to catch seals by even beaching themselves (able to get back in the water) They are very enduring being known to chase their prey for many hours in an attempt to exhaust them... Then It's time to rip them apart. - Cazaam

The power of lust gives these beasts the aggression that sends them absolutely insane when a rival male wanders into their territory.

These animals are extremely unpredictable! Have you seen the battle from Kruger these Buffaloes nearly kill a pride of lions. Not to mention that a baby buffalo had around 8 lions trying to suffocate it and it still survived. This animal needs to be at least on the top 2

They kill more people than lions, only reason lions prey on them because lions have numbers, if lions didn't have numbers, they'd only be preying on calves

6 Human Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

7 Golden Eagle

I don't know if they just like to scare grizzly bears "for the lulz" or what? But you know what they have done? They've attempted many challenges including the Honey Badger and Grizzly Bears. These birds don't believe in the rule of predation, they will try to kill anything it seems. - Cazaam

18 Chimpanzee Chimpanzee Chimpanzees are primates of the genus Pan which consists of the common chimpanzee and the bonobo. They are a part of the tribe Hominini, which also includes humans, and the family Hominidae where all great apes are included.

19 Wolverine Wolverine The wolverine, Gulo gulo, also referred to as the glutton, carcajou, skunk bear, or quickhatch, is the largest land-dwelling species of the family Mustelidae.

"This animal should be #1 on the list. Easy. First off, Hippopotamus only attack if you invade their territory, most commonly water, whereas Wolverines will actively hunt for pray instead of staying in their territory waiting for something to enter which in the hippo's case would be a croc, big fish, zebra, or anything else that might enter it's territory in search of water such as a bison. A shark would only attack you if you if it smelled blood, were making noise, or attacked it which are specific reasons making it easy for a shark to avoid you. Also, if you weren't doing any of these things the chance of a shark attacking you is less than the chance of you being struck down by lightning. Lastly, and most specifically, a wolverine is obviously more aggressive and territorial than a grizzly. If a wolverine encountered a grizzly (A wolverine is near 1/3 the size of a grizzly), the wolverine would be the first one to attack although it probably wouldn't win."
