Top Ten Deadliest Animals


The Top Ten

1 Humans

They are probably talking about my sweet ninja/MMA/street fighting skills. People like myself are probably the most dangerous animals in the world. So I agree...

No offense but to the list on here, how could anyone believe that one man bring every animal minus the sea ones onto one wooden boat then everyone on the wooden boat and the sea animals survive.

Human history is thousands of years of battling and wars. There isn't a greedier, more corrupt, or manipulative species on the planet. WE DOMINATE! - VADERtheIMPALER

We kill a lot of things

2 Great White Shark Great White Shark The great white shark, also known as the great white, white pointer, white shark, or white death, is a species of large lamniform shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans.

This should be like 100 this thing is not dangerous to humans at all

I love sharks I want to be a marine biologist when I grow up

This should be Number 1! One time, I had a nightmare that I fell in a giant tank, and a great white shark swam up to me and bit me so hard I bled to death! I will never forget that horrible nightmare! PLEASE put this at Number 1!

There NOT scary people watch jaws it's a good movie I think there cute just look at that adorable face

And those adorable teeth coming up to bite you in half.
Yeah. Fantastic. - RewMac0435

3 Mosquito Mosquito Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

Should be number 2

No one knows the numbers, but have humans really killed more organisms then mosquitos? We have decimated several ecosystems in a very short amount of time, but mosquitos have been around for millions of years.

Mosquitos should be number two

Kills like 2 million people a year

4 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.

Orcas are my favourite animal since I was very young and they still are to this day!

Killer Whales eat BABY WHALES by DROWNING from and separating them from their mother. I saw it on T.V., then the baby whale is drowning their is blood. And then they ONLY eat there tongue! What a WASTE.


Of course! Killer whales are the top predators of the universe. Why are great whites on top of them? They eat great whites! Their technique for eating the great whites are awesome. First, I'll ask you a question. Do you feel dizzy and cannot think of anything or do a lot of things when you are upside down (your head looking backwards by hanging your head very high)? Of course, everybody's like that. Killer whales use this technique to kill great white. They flip the shark upside down, so the shark couldn't attack. Then the orca tears it apart. What a magnificent technique!

They eat sharks for breakfast and they are the fastest mammal in the sea. They have a jaw full of massive teeth as well as being super intelligent and having awesome power. They can own all the other animals on this list reaching speeds of up to 55 km per hour.

5 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.

If you go face to face with a hippo you have no chance of even injuring the hippo. What about moto moto?

Venus when I don't recycle a plastic water bottle

I think moto moto like you

This list is very incorrect; The hippo kills more people each year than the lion and the elephant. It may seem slow, but this monster can run very fast on land and have teeth that while they don't seem sharp, are capable of goring humans and animals. It is particulaly defensive around young. However, to give this list some credit, the box jellyfish is very deadly - JasperB

6 Siberian Tiger Siberian Tiger The Siberian tiger, also known as the Amur tiger, is a tiger population inhabiting mainly the Sikhote Alin mountain region with a small population in southwest Primorye Province in the Russian Far East.

Rare and extinct but more powerful than great white shark

Awesome Siberian tiger

I like Siberian tigers just fine, but these endangered guys sure do have a wicked bite. - RedTheGremlin

A very rare species of cat, but very strong. Some can be quite shy, however others will attack most things in the russian forests. - biddiebob99

7 Australian Saltwater Crocodile

SNAP! Your dead.

With the strongest bite, able to walk and swim, with lots of dangerous teeth, able to take down a wildebeest, and the element of surprise, runs up to as fast as a human on short burst, this thing surely deserves to be in the top 3 I MEAN, why is it 6th? It deserves better.. As they can reach up to 20 feet. Lots of teeth designed to grip. There is surely no escape from this animal once it hits you.

This is probably the deadliest thing on earth and can send an elephant crying... Or kill it. They can kill a hippo with the worlds strongest bite. They can't chew but worse... They rip limb by limb.

They have 68 teeth abnd have the strongest bite on earth. They can weigh up to one ton. They can be up to 20 feet long. They are the only predators of lions. In world war 2 27 seven men went in to the water and 5 came out. They had been eaten by crocodile

8 African Lion

A shark, human and mosquito compared to this beautiful deadly creature is nothing

False! Humans are not animals and mosquitoes kill 2 million per year. Your little lion is not near as deadly, therefore you are wrong. Sorry. - RedTheGremlin

The African Lion kills around 200 every year. The Bengal Tiger is more fierce but kills fewer than the lion.

They are king of the beasts

They are the coolest animals in the world

9 Anaconda Anaconda Anacondas are group of large snakes of the genus Eunectes. They are large snakes found in tropical South America.

I hate these things

I'm a anaconda sss like if anacondas are creepy

Not at all venomous, but tightly squeeze there pray to death. They live in the wetlands of south America. - biddiebob99

Anacondas are the worlds largest snakes I'm pretty sure one got to be able to go as high the top of a jeep and was large enough to swallow a deer

10 Australian Box Jellyfish

If you get stung by that thing, your dagnab HEART CAN STOP! This should be in the top 5 at the least. These animals are one reason why I won't step FOOT in an Australian beach. - PhoenixAura81

As the most venomous sea creature or THE MOST VENOMOUS CREATURE, this thing can kill you around 10 minutes, stay away from the ocean!

Definitely a lot deadlier than any other animal on this list... - Celestius

They don't mean to hurt you. All they do all day is float around in the ocean and you just happen to swim into them.

The Contenders

11 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.

Although they have the strength to kill people easily but they don't usually kill.
They are herbivores.
They are one of the most deadliest animals that live peacefully without killing anyone unless someone try to hurt or their family.

Elephants can kill many different ways to kill they can lift 20000 pounds!

Elephants kill around 500 people each year.

True King of the Beasts

12 Polar Bear Polar Bear The polar bear is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses.

Polar bears are dangerous if you bug them or get to close. If a polar bear is starving they’ll run after you for there own survival but they are usually not dangerous around humans.

They may not look scary, but believe me, they are fierce.

This should be above grizzly 92% of the people who travel to the northern pole or Greenland (same places) is attacked or killed by a polar bear they should be swapped with the grizzly bear and be put at number 15 they are super aggressive they only 1 predator the killer whale also 1 person was attacked by a polar bear and got 1 of the polar bears tooth stuck in its skull

Sure they might look cuddly at the zoo, but in the wild they eat elephant seals for breakfast. Get between one and its cub and it could easily rip off your head with one swipe of its giant paw. - 09ShamsulBahriel

13 Piranha Piranha A piranha or piraña, a member of family Characidae in order Characiformes, is a freshwater fish that inhabits South American rivers, floodplains, lakes and reservoirs.

Piranhas are cute but also dangerous. I like piranhas because of size, shape but also speed. If I could have a pet one I would be very happy.

Hey! Maybe I could hook you up! They're pretty easy to find if you know where to look. - RedTheGremlin

Very bad idea to enter piranha infested water if you have a cut.

Some species of Piranhas only eat DEAD skin and corpses. - LemonComputer

They're pretty venomous and can have very bad side-effects if you get bitten by them. Not only that, but they're also FAST! They're the fastest snake in the world and if you're running away from them, that won't be easy. - PhoenixAura81

This snake is the second most deadly snake in the world and should be higher on the list

This may not be the most venomouse snake in the world, but if you get bitten you will be paralyzed and will die in just minutes. - biddiebob99

Has The Most DEADLY venom

They would eat killer whales whole

The Grizzly Bear Should be In at least The Top Ten, They Can Crush A Bowling Ball With Just A Bite ( Don't Believe Me Then Research On it).
In India They've Been Known To Kill Siberian Tigers.
They Never Reatreat When They are in a fight (They stand very tall)

19 Spotted Hyena

Spotted Hyena is speed animal in big teeth. Great microscope vision comparison his Goddess woman name ALTI, in serial Xena: warrior princess episode 4. ALTI, spiritual woman, great power and she is waiting for subject and ALTI his deadly his small slow power subject, comparision to Spotted Hyena.

20 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.

Tiger is deadliest animal, he have strip orange and black body, my interesting compare to amazon ruler woman of 6 season, Xena: Warrior princess, 1 episode and many last episodes. One Amazon his me picture red strip line of body and head, this is amazon ruler his name (VARIA).

Sharpest teeth

21 Bull Shark Bull Shark The bull shark is a requiem shark that is considerably dangerous. These sharks live in both freshwater and saltwater environments. Bull sharks can be recognized by seeing a shark in freshwater and watching the shark due a hit and run.

The most aggressive shark.

Might not be as big as a great white, it's still the most aggressive shark or the shark who killed the most ammount of people. They are one of the two sharks that can swim in freshwater, this surely can be more deadly than the great white

Mostly found in freshwater rivers.

Most deadliest shark,can swim in fresh water.

22 Leopard Leopard The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus Panthera. It is one of the most adaptable and the most widespread big cat; it's secrets being:well camouflaged fur; its opportunistic hunting behaviour, broad diet, and strength to move heavy carcasses into trees; its ability to adapt to various more.

Because it is the top cat by far and capable of bringing animals up to the size of Buffalo on its own unlike Lions.

I think it should be in the top 25!

23 Rhinoceros
24 Poison Dart Frog

These little things may look cute with cool bright colors but don't be fooled, one touch can kill up to 10 humans. This little guy can kill 2 African bull elephants as well

These things may not seem deadly plus they don't try to hurt you but one touch from these little guys can kill up to ten people at once

25 Jaguar Jaguar The jaguar is a wild cat species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas.

While these feline hunters are good at stalking they are also camouflaged in the rainforest and this makes them a deadly hunter

Jaguars are brave and fierce in fighting, protecting cubs and worst of all, protecting thrmselves from getting shot, making them the world's most deadliest cat and lethal animal ever.

26 Bengal Tiger
27 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.

Cassowaries kill humans! They are the most dangerous bird in the world. They attack cars and humans in them. I'm afraid of them, as the 14th most dangerous animal in the world!

29 Snakes Snakes 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.

Although snakes have a less than favorable reputation, there are many harmless species that help contain rodents and pests. In many areas there are small numbers of poisonous snakes with a varying degree of lethality.

30 Ocean Sunfish

I don't really see the danger about Sunfish.

Ocean Sunfish is beautifull intellect grey fish, my compare to alliance of serial Xena: warrior princess. My compare Ocean Sunfish with warrior in great grey costum this man to compare is name JOXER. JOXER is werry discipline warrior of serial Xena: Warrior princess, JOXER his great alliance.

35 Alligator Alligator An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. The two living species are the American alligator and the Chinese alligator. Additionally, several extinct species of alligator are known from fossil remains.

2. Instead of killing their prey by straight up eating them, they infest them with their mouth bacteria by biting them and then stalk them until they're dead.
3. They're incredibly fast, like, they can chase gazelles kind of fast.

I'm pretty sure these are deadly. The can kill deer monkeys buffalos and snakes so they are actually pretty deadly

They have a bacteria in their mouth that is toxic. It's that drool that is always dribbling out of their mouths.

Very deadly only way 2 survive is 2 cut off the part they bit I think if it bites you have like 5-10 minutes 2 live - Hunter17p

40 Gray Wolf

They are scared of humans!

Wolves are not that dangerous to humans. They kill 2 people a century. Plus, they gave us dogs, so don't hate wolves.

No they didn't give us dogs. Evolution does not exist, and dogs were created as dogs, not evolved from wolves. - RedTheGremlin

Wolfs are not dangerous unless they are very hungry, scared, or they are provoked. - Lord_Allen

They are more scared of you than you are of them.

41 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

My dog is not aggressive at all! She lays down all day, and she barks when she sees someone, then they just start petting her.

This needs to be up higher.

Back in Arizona, there was a pack of chihuahuas killing people all over the state. The fact that a bunch of tiny dogs could be so dangerous really makes me fear a pack of pitbulls. - KeyboardHero

I do not believe they are the deadliest, but they can kill you! You may not fear them, but they are so deadly that... Well... LISTEN! MY MOTHER ALMOST GOT KILLED OVER OUR DOG! HE LEARNED HOW TO BEHAVE BUT HE DID! FEAR MY DOG! IF YOU ARE A KIDNAPPER HE WILL RIP YOUR FACE OFF AND HE WONT SAY R.I.P.! AND... AND... I KNOW A LITTLE BIT OF KARATE SO ILL PROTECT MY PUPPY WITH MY LIFE IN FACT! He will claw their faces of, bite their ears and wake me up to call 911! Now that is a good thing to do... Even though I don't kill, I call the police and let them make kidnappers stay in jail for the rest of their lifes! YEAH!

No offense, but nobody cares about your dog. My dogs are good guard dogs, but they're not vicious. Plus, if he almost killed your mother then why do you still have him? You should get rid of him if he almost killed someone. That's dangerous. Your mutt is going to kill someone, then you'll be sued. Enough said. - RedTheGremlin
