The Top Ten

1 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.

Should a megladon be at the top?

They aren't deadly. They just think we are seals so they eat us. There is nothing wrong with that. If we wouldn't look like seal they probably wouldn't eat us

There's over 100 attacks a year

I agree. It isn't their fault they attack us, but still, deadly doesn't mean not to include animals that attack us accidentally.

2 Payara

The piranhas deadlier cousin with 4-6 inch fangs to eat its prey red bellied piranhas and they grow to 4 feet and will kill anything that attacks it easily

I've seen one it almost bit my finger off!

If their lunch is pirahnas then yes

It is the most deadliest in pack too

3 Lionfish

Oh god you guys are confused! The Lionfish doesn’t kill you, it just gives you intense pain

Have venomous spines that jab and kill

Its like a scorpion


4 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.

I love bull sharks but they are so deadly

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!
