The Top Ten

1 Man

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

HELLO! We have nuclear bombs, tanks, missles, guns, torpedos!

This list is wrong. We are animals, Homo Sapiens. We kill more animals each year than mosquitoes, fleas, and crocodiles. Just because we aren't as agile as other animals, doesn't mean we don't bring fear and terror into other species.

We laterally kill anything we see as a threat including ourselves

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.

Have anyone heard in this comment that sharks don't really attack humans? No? A shark doesn't really have a strong bite force, they mostly kill with their razor sharp teeth. I mean no offense to shark fans but I am telling the truth, plus sharks doesn't really kill people that much, in estimates of years, its mostly 20 - 30 attacks in each year

Blood in the water can excite these sharks into a feeding frenzy, where they'll use all 3,000 of their teeth to bite anything that moves. - 09ShamsulBahriel

Sharks don't know that are skin is soft, they often bite you if they are afraid or if they mistake you for there prey, people who get bit swing there arm leg (etc) away, but if you get bit, don't move and he will let go.

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 .

How is this just number 4? They kill 2 million people each year! Can sharks fly? No. Can killer whales even bother to kill humans? No. Can elephants / hippos win a running or flying race with them? No. I do accept them being number 2 while humans are number 1 but come on people! Are me and the voters for mosquito or human the only people that know what animals should be number 2 and 1?

Most skeeter bites just make you itch. But some mosquitoes carry and transfer malaria causing parasites. As a result, these little pests are responsible for the deaths of more than two million people a year.

- 09ShamsulBahriel

Mosquito's are responsible for about 2 million human deaths every year! That's more deaths than all the other animals combined!

Should be higher than the shark. The shark shouldn't even be on the list. - LemonComputer

4 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.

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

This list is terrible. Hippos are much more dangerous and aggressive than many of the other creatures on the list (Especially if they have their young nearby). I doubt it would be nice to get slammed around by a beast weighing a ton with giant teeth that it could impale you on. - Cazaam

You may not no it but hippos are one of Africa's deadliest animals and guess what what they have 20 inch fangs yes fangs that can kill crocodiles yes crocodiles oh for Pete sake there super deadly they destroyed game vehicles enough said.

At least the hippo from Madagascar isn't dangerous - JaysTop10List

5 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.

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.

Finally these people wake up to the fact: nothing has been discovered that could beat a killer whale one-on-one.

Killer whales are amazing creatures and they are the most deadly animal in the sea, they don't kill humans unless they are stuck in a tiny cramped tank for human entertainment. That's right seaworld! '

The Great Whites that Killer Whales eat are smaller. I'd like to see a 6m Orca challenge a 6m Great White shark of equal mass one on one. Good luck to it if it escapes alive - Libra888

6 Australian Saltwater Crocodile

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.

Don't mistake this croc for a log! It can lay still in the water, waiting for passers by. Then, in the blink of an eye, it'll lunge at prey, pulling it under water to drown and dismember. - 09ShamsulBahriel

They eat everything! - Nateawesomeness

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

8 Australian Box Jellyfish

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

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

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

The world's heaviest snake (longest snake belongs to reticulated Python), this can surely crush your bones.

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 King Cobra King Cobra

Pfft, really? Cobras are not that near being venomous, just compare it to the black mamba and inland taipan.

They're pretty aggressive and big - JaysTop10List

They're one of the most deadly snakes ever because the venom is so deadly that you will die in 5 minutes

Because of there habitat, and aggressive behavior, and that most people in that region wear shorts.

The Contenders

11 African Lion

Giant fangs? Check. Lightning quick? That too. Razor sharp claws? You betcha. Hungry? You better hope not. These big cats are near perfect hunters. - 09ShamsulBahriel

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

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

They are the coolest animals in the world

12 Piranha Piranha

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.

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

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

Have you seen that piranha movie? They're pretty dangerous - JaysTop10List

13 Black Mamba

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

Biddiebob99, snakes are venomous and the black mamba is the most venomous snake in the world. Research, we miss you.

I love elephants, but they can be dangerous

16 Cape Buffalo Cape Buffalo

When faced with a predator, cape buffaloes charge head on. That's 1,500 pounds of beast topped off with two big, sharp horns. You're lucky if there's only one - the real danger comes when a herd of thousands stampedes in your direction. - 09ShamsulBahriel

I think they are the biggest dangerous army that I've ever seen... - 09ShamsulBahriel

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

One of the most endangered bears in the world. It's very unlikely to happen but if you are attacked by one of these bears, the power and the size of there paws could easily kill a human. - biddiebob99
