Top Ten Deadliest Animals


The Top Ten

1 Humans

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.

Thanks for putting humans on the list, first off we litter, we break animals habitats and homes, we chop trees and trees help us to breath, even humans are like super greedy when they see money, that's how we are, second weaponary, people did you fknow get that we have loads of deadly weapons rifles, snipers, and bombs, plus there are Murderers and robbers in this world in the human life is very dangerous and deadly.

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

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.

( Shark documentary )

Great white shark is deadly very very deadly. If you don, t get in the ocean the shark will be prayed on fish and seal. This shark is will be good it will be a shark all sharks worldwide thank you

Cut your privacy. Navel, vagina, boobs

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?

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

2 million deaths a year in Africa it should be above the great white shark which kills 10 people a year so if your in Africa please be aware of the diseases mosquitos spread they can kill people 5 and younger in Africa

Kills most people

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.

Hippos are so deadly,and their fast in water and land! - Nateawesomeness

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.

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.

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

The only reason why I think they are here is because of seaworld. seaworld abusese their orcas. their is this orca named Tilikum who was captured in 1983 in I think iceland or something and was then brought to marine land canada. where Tilikum killed 1 trainer in 1991 then brought to seaworld but then another trainer in 1999 and then another in 2010. So Tilikum killed three trainers and is suffering from a rare bacterial disease and is slowly dying and seaworld forces him to perform. seaworld is a bunch of cowards. they capture orcas for profit. the ceo of seaworld is a dick and orcas are getting tourtured. humans desreve to be #1. seaworld only wants profit and that is all it cares about.

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.

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

I've got two words for all of you out there


I'm telling y'all if one of these get a hold of you it's game over and it won't take long for his buddies to come along too

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.

38 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.
