4 Bull Shark Bull Shark

Highest recorded testosterone levels ever recorded were in this beast. Which tend to be the reason the animal is so aggressive. They like to charge and ram their prey before feeding, hence the name.

Reported most agressive shark and kills anything it thinks it can eat

This shark is the most deadly shark on earth!

5 Stonefish Stonefish

People have described its sting as the worst pain they have ever felt x 10

The most venomous fish in the world, and from what I've heard, stepping on them is so indescribably painful, some people have wanted to have their limb amputated.

It's been considered the worlds deadliest fish for quite song time now because of you step on it you get poisoned and it will bite your feet it has like 150 deaths per year

This is a fish that can blend into underwater surroundings easily and is named after its look- STONE fish- to the human naked eyes just glancing down it looks like a harmless rock but if you stand on it its 13 poisonous spines it shoots out venom.just a bit of the venom in your body and I can kill you within a couple of hours. the pain they cause is horrendous- 10-20 x the worst pain you have ever felt.
