Top 10 Most Feared Wild PredatorsThey can attack from anywhere, on the ground, in the air and even under the water, let's see who is the best hunter and the most feared one?
As the name suggests, the killer whale is a deadly predator, combining remarkable skill with awesome physical power. Orcas have a number of ingenious techniques in their hunting arsenal, giving them one of the most diverse diets of all aquatic predators. For example, they are fond of knocking seals and penguins from ice floes in order to seize them as they fall into the water. They have also been known to intentionally beach themselves in order to reach seals onshore. Highly social animals, killer whales tend to live in pods made up of dozens of individuals working cooperatively to snag prey. Some have even been known to successfully prey on great white sharks.
The apex predator of the world (besides us)
Honestly, the killer whale is so impressive, it has been known to hunt the Blue Whale.
No I don't know about you, but preying on the biggest animal that ever lived is remarkable. Put it like this, that would be like the great white shark preying upon the Sperm Whale etc
Nothing preys on the orca and it is the perfect killing machine with strength, speed and intelligence.
Killer whales have also been known to kill great whites so I don't know how people think they're the apex predator of the world. In my opinion, bull sharks are more impressive than the great white.
It has been shown over and OVER that tigers reign supreme as the real king of the jungle. They are bigger, stronger, more ferocious, etc.
The tiger is undeniably one of, if not the greatest land predators on the planet. I've seen a Bengal tigress hold off two lions. I mean sure, different fights have different results, and there's probably evidence that lions can kill tigers, but overall, the tiger will win more than the lion. Even Bengal tigers can take down crocodiles, while Siberian tigers have taken down male Kodiak bears, which are far bigger and stronger than the tiger. (basically larger grizzly bears)
No offense, but some of you need to get your facts straight before you vote.
I an well aware that lions are incredibly impressive predators, but male lions really only have to fight other lions for possession of their pride. After that, it's basically naps and meals.
This animal is known as the "king of the jungle, " and for good reason. Lions hunt some of the largest prey on Earth, including buffalo and wildebeest. Part of their terrific success as predators comes from the fact that they cooperate in their kills. Lions live in social groups called prides, and all members work together in the hunt. Young lions learn their place in the pride early in life by play-fighting, which teaches them the skills they'll need for the hunt and determines what role they are most suited to perform. Lions' hunting success rate is only about one in five, but those odds are impressive when you consider that their prey species are massive creatures with plenty of fighting power of their own.
They have better fighting skills than tigers. And match with polar bear which is twice heavier than lion and have long claws but defenseless.All bears have fibre tissues of muscles which are weak and lion that can crush the skin of hippo which is equal to the skin of whale there is no doubt that lion can't crush skin of bear.And match with tiger. Tiger does not fight with other tigers they have poor fighting skills. Don't use captivity tigers vs captivity lions. In wild tiger weighs up to 275 kg and lions up to 200 kgs, so difference of weight is some of pounds. Although tiger has than lion that is tiger (127) and lion (112) and tiger have long claws but some less stamina than lions and tiger's skin is softer than lions. Lion have better fighting skill because when they are not the part of pride they live 3 to 4 years alone they learn fighting skills and some lionesses are also living alone they learn how to hunt alone. Proved lion will won because of better fighting skill, stamina and defense.
Any animal that has the misfortune of being preyed upon by the great white shark stands very little chance of surviving the attack. This animal is No. 1 on our countdown for its remarkable predatory abilities. With its streamlined body and strong jaws, the great white is a powerful animal: a fast swimmer and an agile aquatic acrobat able to leap high out of the water to surprise its prey. The great white shark also has multiple rows of sharp serrated teeth, each being replaced as soon as one is lost. In fact, a single shark can go through more than 50, 000 teeth in its lifetime. Great whites typically begin their attacks with a single punishing bite. The shark then waits for its victim to be weakened by the wound before it returns to eat - a technique that allows the predator to feed in relative safety.
I'm a Shark fanatic and there is no predator more worthy of a place on this list than the Great White Shark. It's ability to strike fear into the hearts of all who hear it's name is unquestionable and it's hunting method is impeccable.
It toys with you for a while, getting a read on the situation. After that, it rams you with incredible force like you've just been hit by a car, before disappearing into the depths below you. Then, just when you think it's gone, it shoots up from beneath you and snatches you up in its jaws and you get one look into its black, lifeless eyes before it rips you to shreds. There is no denying it. The Great White is the ultimate killing machine.
God so many wolfaboos. First off a wolf is very average in terms of animal intelligence. Second, they are not fluffy sparkle dogs, they are vicious wild canines who will attack and kill a human when given the chance. Sure they might be pretty, but underneath all of that they are still wild animals. Killer whales and dolphins are much more intelligent (seeing as a dolphin can recognize themselves in a mirror which is something that a wolf cannot do.) Lastly, the gray wolf is not endangered nor have they ever been threatened with extinction. When given the chance, wolves can breed like rats and kill off most of the carrion population.
Grey wolves are not only among the smartest animals on earth, smarter than any animal on this list exempt possibly the killer whale, they also are among the top distance runners in the animal kingdom capable of continuing a chase for hours longer than any of these other animals. The wolf therefore is not only a highly social, it runs in packs up to 30 strong, and it's a highly intelligent animal. It will virtually never stop chasing you.
Polar bears by far are the most powerful land predators on earth. They kill seals and walruses and can pull a 1 ton beluga whale out of the icy ocean. No other land carnivore can match the power of a polar bear. Kodiak Bears number 2 and grizzly bears number 3 and Siberian tigers number 4
Polar bears used to be brown bears whom wondered the north for food, then they adapted to the freezing environment and grew white fur, learned how to swim and most importantly created a new species of bear! # I love them
Polar bears can bring down "number one" on this list, the Killer Whale! Just because an animal is feared through stories doesn't mean it is dangerous
Has the strongest bite on earth (almost as the T-Rex's), his preys can be great whites-like or any other thing in the australian sea, that's why it's the ultimate carnivore.
At contrary than the other crocs, this one never gets tired, and if this it's not enough, it's the most intelligent reptile, 7 times more than the Great White.
You can't improve perfection and that's why this beast has been almost unchanged (the size of crocs has changed) for millions of years. They can take down anything they want and have stealth and power better then anything else on this list. Should be #1
If you put a lion a crocodile a python a Komodo dragon and a tiger in a cadge for 3 weeks the last one standing would be the crocodile.
They are the fastest biggest land beast. They also can and like to swim! Lions hunt together prides so no way they should be ahead. The Grizzly is a close second land wise.
Bengal tigers are wonderful animals we should learn to love them too, stop the fur hunting and pretend you're the species being wiped out. How would you feel! #tigers rule
The Bengal Tiger is not the biggest cat. The Siberian Tiger is, followed by the African Lion. However, they definitely belong on the list.
This is a very graceful cat, with extreme speed. They have a high bite force and sharp claws which enables them to be one of the BEST predators
Cheetahs should be third
Cheetahs are awesome.
The Golden eagle is the best eagle.They are at the top of the food chain and Golden eagles also hunt wolves! Golden eagles are also very large eagles and they have a grip about 430 pounds per square inch! Even though it is not the most powerful eagle, it yet hunts the largest prey of any bird! They are also the 2nd fastest animals in the world losing only to the Peregrine falcon. But Golden eagles are apex predators and peregrine falcons are not apex predators. Also, Golden eagles eat Peregrine falcons.
Eagles are the best birds. There strong, fast and agile. It's no wonder the US chose a bald EAGLE to symbolize there country.
They can kill wolves, foxes and deer easily. And they can fly 80 mph and dive 150 mph
Hyena's have one of the most powerful jaws in the world. Their bite is significantly tougher than a lions plus hyenas are pack hunters giving them an extra edge.
Hyenas are actually second only to lions for top land predators
The most fearsome animal in all Africa may well be the black mamba, the giant venomous snake found throughout the southeastern portion of the continent. It gets its name from the black skin on the inside of its mouth, which it displays just before it strikes. These animals are usually quite shy, but can be extremely aggressive when confronted. When they do attack, they tend to strike their victims repeatedly, releasing a lethal mix of neurotoxin and cardiotoxin. In the past, a bite from a black mamba was 100 percent fatal. Now, that figure is decreasing due to the increased use of anti-venom throughout the continent.
My comparison his BLACK MAMBA, wild predator of in principal woman film Kill Bill. BLACK MAMBA, his poison snake I comparison to principal woman in Kill Bill 1 and 2. Yellow costum danger woman. Name actress is Uma Thurman. Yellow woman and magic zord is attacker offer world Yakuza.
The grizzly bear, also known as the brown bear, is probably the most feared animal in North America. This powerful predatory animal can stand 7 feet tall and weigh more than 800 pounds. Its strong limbs and huge paws can kill a man in a single swipe, and its powerful crushing jaws allow it to feed on a variety of foods, including large mammals. Grizzlies are also strong swimmers and fast runners. Coming face to face with this animal in the wild can be a harrowing experience, but the best response is to stand tall and resist the urge to run. These animals have been clocked at more than 40 miles per hour, and running away from them can trigger their chase response.
Have you ever seen the size of a Kodiak's paw? It's twice the size of your head and has really long powerful claws. Except for maybe a polar bear no other land predator could touch it (well, maybe a giant crocodile could, but grizzlies have pretty impressive stamina). These monoliths are able to shrug off bullets very easily unless it's a high-caliber straight shot to the heart or head. A Lion or Tiger would be destroyed in seconds since their hunting tactics revolve around tackling, and the Kodiak is just too big for that. Definitely the baddest land predator.
Anacondas are one of the top predators in the Amazon Rainforest. They coil their prey and squeeze until prey starts to suffocate. They start to swallow their prey when it dies. They come at land to hunt their prey at night.
If you're in Mozambique. They might come into your house and kill you in their sleep. I love leopards anyway. They have really cute cubs!
They're basically animal assassins, really silent but excellent at killing.
Extremely fast and adaptable, these brilliant animals should be way ahead of the wolf. Wolves only exist due to the good graces of mankind. Coyotes are more than survivors, they are thrivers.
There was a coyote in my backyard once!
They are to be feared and respected. These cats can take down massive anacondas (if working as a team), Black Caimans and even Black bears. There are various photographic, videos and pictures of proof relating to this. Their immensely crazy bite can crush turtle shells as if they were twigs. There was a case where a jaguar stalked and nearly killed a child. These instances are rare, but can go unrecorded and are not uncommon with habitat encroachment. It would be too horrifying to comprehend if these cats got a taste for human blood.
It's not all about speed. You've gotta think about stealth hunters too! Jaguars are the 3rd biggest cat after tiger and lion. I'm not saying that they should definitely be number 1. That's just my opinion, but cut the jaguar some slack okay? Plus have you seen jaguar cubs? They're well, cute!
The strongest reptile in the world. It can kill anything including lions and hyenas. The strongest bite force in the world.
The largest of all lizards, the Komodo dragon is a mighty reptile that weighs up to 300 pounds and can reach a length of more than 10 feet. This animal takes our No. 6 spot for having multiple predatory advantages: speed, strength and the tenacity to bring down prey species twice its size. They also have a toxic bite; any victim that survives a Komodo dragon attack is likely to succumb to their wounds soon after. Komodos mainly hunt by ambushing their prey, but they are also fast runners and good swimmers. What's more, their incredible predatory skills are matched by an equally impressive ability to consume meat, up to half their own body weight in a single meal.
One reason is because they're HUGE! Another reason is just because of their bite, A. Their saliva is toxic, B. Their mouths are full of bacteria which can cause an infection for its victims. C. Their teeth alone would hurt. They're also pretty agile.
Nasty creatures with a vicious bite. Plus, they swarm and are known for eating anything that touches the water; including humans.
Those guys can eat a cow in like a minute. Its true. They ate a bus full of people in 5 mins.
