Countries With the Most Dangerous Animals

Sometimes I wonder how to cope with life in some of these places. I live in England, and so the most dangerous animal here is probably the occasional wasp, and just sting and leave you, but in these places, it is much worse.

The Top Ten

1 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Everything in Australia wants to kill you. I've seen documentaries where is had taken weeks to find a tiger in the wild. I can walk out into my back yard and catch the worlds deadliest spiders. I can burley up off the coast and find a white pointer shark. I can walk to the beach an find a king Brown snake. If you live in the northern territory you can't swim in the ocean or the rivers. Sea snakes, blue ringed octopus, box jelly fish, stone fish, salt water crocks, every deadly shark will take your life. Koalas my look cute but in the wild if you try to approach one they talon like claws that will tear you to shreds. A kangaroo had a large claw on the middle toe of its back feet. It's can stand on its tail raise is back legs and with one kick disembowel you. The red kangaroo can stand 7 feet tall. Not only is it enormously strong but it can box. I'm not kidding. Even the cute as pie platipus have a nasty poisonous spur on its back legs. I concede Africa had the most number of great ...more

You asked " countries with the most dangerous animals" and the answer is Australia. It has the most venomous snakes, the most venomous spider (that may be contested) and the most deadly animal of all the box jelly fish. Not to mention salt water crocodile, it even has killer ants. To say Brazil is folly, first Australia has a tiny population compared to Brazil, and live only on the coast. The contact between humans and dangerous animals is rare, owing to the fact of education in Australia of the danger of these animals. More deaths have nothing to do with your question.

Yep. I'm an Indian Aussie and I believe that Australia has very dangerous animals, even though Australia is a very safe country to live in, but still. Crocodiles, snakes and spiders are the most dangerous of them all. But other animals such as kangaroos and emus could be also dangerous; if they are provoked.

Always check your shoes & sosk, bath towel, shower curtain, rubbish bin, bike seat, and what not for things that'll jump out and run right up your arm. And possibly bite/sting you.

2 Brazil Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

Very high biodiversity.

The most dangerous animals here in Brazil are the humans.

Australia has dangerous animals, but most of the dangerous animals are the sea creatures. Brazil has cougars, anacondas, warrior wasps, poison dart frog, bullet ants, Piranhas, scorpions, stonefishes, Brazilian wander spider which I would say the spider is more dangerous than any spider species in Australia combined. And if Australia is still the most dangerous, Brazil definitely is one of the most scariest, you cannot deny it

Brazil has the most venomous spider called the Brazilian Wonder Spider. Brazil has very venomous snakes and scorpions. The Amazon Rainforest has several types of dangerous animals including the Anaconda and piranhas. The sea coast has many sharks, cone snails, jellyfishes, stone fishes which are also deadly. Mosquitoes of many types are also dangerous.

3 Democratic Republic of the Congo Democratic Republic of the Congo The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known as DR Congo, DRC, DROC, Congo-Kinshasa, or simply the Congo is a country located in Central Africa.

I was originally going to vote for a country in The Americas but I changed my mind and settled for an african country.

As well as having a huge diversity of large or venomous animals, humans are what make this place more terrifying.

I don't know it just is


4 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

Tigers, Tigers, etc.

India is by far the most dangerous country in the world for animal attacks. It makes Australia look like New Jersey.

Only country in the world where you can see tigers and lions in the wild. Not to mention leopards, elephants, buffaloes, Rhinos, bears, wolves, king cobras, pythons etc.

Whatever animals Africa has in different countries, here we have them in a single place.

Well India is the land to have maximum of all big cats tigers, lions, leopards, snow leopard and cloted leopards, 4 species of bears, rhinos, elephant, worlds largest bison gaur, extra large water buffaloe, saltwater water croc., honey badger, hyena, many wolfs, hyper wild dogs dhols and many other posinous reptails and amphibians. it is of course dangerous and I say most dangerous

5 South Africa South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana more.

South Africa definitely, , look on wild, people always get killed when they visit South Africa by nasty animals!

The big difference between Africa and other places is that with most other places animals kill you in self defense. In Africa you are on the menu for a surprisingly large amount of creatures in addition to those that kill in self defense.

Don't even get me started, there are so many apex predators, powerful aggressive herbivores. Let's just give you a bit of them. Rhinos, lions, Buffaloes, leopards, hyenas, cheetahs, jackals, elephants, hippos, honey badgers. There are so many more

How is Africa not in the top5

9 United States United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

Some people just vote for America because they hate Americans and America

Alligators are very scary.

Not by any means number 1 for dangerous animals, but still much more dangerous than Europe. No offense, but why would any European country on this list be present after #20? Just no. The United States has an extremely diverse ecosystem, wether it be the arid desserts of the Southwest, humid swamps of the Southeast, or the somewhat less humid, tall forests of the mid Atlantic states and the Northeast, everywhere has a decent selection of dangerous animals, even with Alaska via polar bears, etc. The U.S. has an abundance of pit vipers, large bears, sharks, alligators in the southeast, not to mention two or so venomous spiders, many large carnivorous cats and mammals in general, and even a venomous lizard, yes, lizard, in the deep southwest: the Gila monster, out of the two venomous lizard s in the world, other being the Mexican beaded lizard. There are more, but I will leave it at that. Also, keep in mind most animals attack only for a reason, so leave them alone and the same will be ...more

Have you ever even been outside? United States has a great animal : population control. Yes Florida has alligators ( NOT CROCS ) and Bears but the Bears literally run away if you go near them and the alligators just ignore them. Just don't bother them and then they won't bother you. Places like Congo or Parts of Australia have either the most poisonous animals or the most deadly (Lions HIPPOS, hippos are very unpredictable and dangerous, While I was in Japan they had a Hippo in a zoo and you could throw Lettuce Heads at it for it to eat it and it ate it in one chomp, And Australia has Blue Ring Octopus and Box Jelly Fish.

Florida has both alligators and crocodiles. It is one of the very few places in the world where both species live. - maitreg

Not really dangeres - skywolf2008

Yeah, Canada, my birthplace, has some dangerous animals. All three bear species from North America live there, (the polar, grizzly, and American black) and they're all dangerous. Coyotes and wolves maim children and pets. The mountain lion and wolverine are all formidable predators, which have no natural predators, (besides humans) and are completely fearless, an at any given time, can attack people if provoked, mostly hunters, or even kids. The herbivores aren't gentle giants either, and they too can be just as dangerous as the carnivores mentioned above. More people are actually attacked by moose and bison, then by bears, wolves, mountain lions, and nearly all predators mentioned above. Even rodents (such as beavers), weasels (badgers, or pine martens), or birds(geese and eagles) can be pretty nasty towards you too if surprised or cornered.

Its not bad - skywolf2008

In Australia: Aaaah a jellyfish! (Runs out of water) safe now!

In Canada: Aaaah a grizzly bear! (Starts running but bear catches up) Help! (Bear rips mans head off)

It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

They have the most dangerous sharks. The snakes are probably the most dangerous in the world. When I visited, I saw the biggest snake I have ever seen in my life, and I see snakes almost everyday.

Well Mister If You Go To South America's Amazon Rainforest It's Gonna Get A Whole Lot Worse!

22 England England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. more.

England has adders, a venomous snake that is very unlikely to cause fatalities. Apparently the September fly or 'daddy long legs' has one of the most deadliest poisons in the world, it just can't bite, but I'm not sure if this is true or like I presume, not. Britain use to be home to wolves, bears and wolverines, but this was a few hundred years ago. English people are notorious for binge drinking, and ruining peoples evenings. They are probably the most dangerous creatures in Spain, and islands across the mediterranean. And I'm English and yeah, we over drink often and without occasion for celebration lol

Stop threatening me I live in England!

How is england on this list remove it. I live in england and the only deadly animal is an angry bee or wasp.

I was born in England and there is nothing dangerous here apart from humans and escaped animals from the zoo
