Top Ten Dangerous Looking But Harmless Animals

What's the most terrifying but harmless creature you can think of?

The Top Ten

1 Blobfish Blobfish The blobfish is a deep sea fish of the family Psychrolutidae. It inhabits the deep waters off the coasts of mainland Australia and Tasmania, as well as the waters of New Zealand.

Blobfish Bill is depressed because everyone is afraid of him even though he's actually harmless

These things look like something out of a science fiction movie!

But I don't care what they say. I'm in love with blobfish.. Pewdiepie - 2015

Bobby Blobfish will rule the world.

2 Praying Mantis

Pretty creepy looking, but not dangerous.

Praying Mantis's definitely aren't dnagerous... It's a bug - ryanrimmel

3 Shark Shark Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.

Harmless? - DrayTopTens

Human also known as Homo Sapiens is certainly the most dangerous animal.

Human is exterminating 60 000 species (animal & vegetal) each year.

Human is killing more than 100 000 000 (One hundred millions) sharks by year.

Who said than Shark is the most dangerous? - AldoMac

And they aren't exactly harmless either. - keycha1n

They're dangerous and capable of killing, but don't kill humans that much.

4 Goliath Bird-Eating Spider

I've held one before. They look like scary monsters but act like teddy bears. - Mono

That's what it wants you to believe but in reality it will kill you! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

5 Bulldog

Bulldog's aren't dangerous.. They're really small and extremely popular - ryanrimmel

6 Parasaurolophus Parasaurolophus Parasaurolophus is a genus of ornithopod dinosaur that lived in what is now North America during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 76.5–74.5 million years ago.

Really? Parasaurolophus has been extinct for millions of years, before humans even evolved.

Also, it doesn't look even that dangerous at all. - DinoLover4242

7 Snake Snake Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. About 600 species are venomous, some of which can be fatal to humans if no medical help is sought.

Are you from 2nd grade? Snakes are deadly as hell! It depends what snake it is but the person who put this on the list is mistaken. Snakes are among the deadliest species.

So many idiots on here, around 80% of snake species are harmless.

Actually most snakes ( that aren't poisonous) are harmless unless you mess with them.

These things are actually very deadly

8 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.

You called that harmless?! Humans caused wars, etc, very deadly creatures! They shouldn't be on this list. - DinoLover4242

They are only the dominant species but scared of everything they can't comprehend so therefore even a worm is more dangerous than these cowardly lions.

Very dangerous species.

They are dangerous! - Mono

9 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.

How is the lion here? Lions are dangerous no matter what. - DinoLover4242

Lions don’t actually attack humans (or it’s extremely rare is they do)

10 Tapir Tapir A tapir is a large, herbivorous mammal, similar in shape to a pig, with a short, prehensile nose trunk.

How is the shark, the lion, and human above the tapir? They are dangerous, while tapirs, despite their appearance, aren't very dangerous. This needs to be on top. - DinoLover4242

The Contenders

11 Spider

Too many people are afraid of spiders, when some, like the garden spider, are completely harmless.

To be honest I am completely PETRAPHIED by spiders. I hate their creepy slender legs and big fangs, EEK gives me shivers just thinking of them.

12 Caiman

Really? Caiman can be dangerous if it's an adult of a large species. - DinoLover4242

13 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

These, like lions, snakes, and sharks, are actually very deadly animals.

They only are deadly when they want to be - Mono

14 Leech Leech Leeches are segmented worms that belong to the phylum Annelida and comprise the subclass Hirudinea. Like the oligochaetes, such as earthworms, leeches share a clitellum and are hermaphrodites.

They make great pets.

15 Raccoon

They are the best and the cutest

16 Cassowary Cassowary The cassowaries are ratites in the genus Casuarius and are native to the tropical forests of New Guinea, nearby islands, and northeastern Australia.

How is this harmless?! Cassowaries have been known to kill people with sharp claws. - DinoLover4242
