The Top Ten

1 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.

The crowned king of the seas. Although these creatures aren't as fantastical or nightmare-inspiring as the other predators on this list, Killer Whales are fast, smart 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.

The scariest animal on the planet. The Great White Shark is the largest species of shark alive today and grows up to give meters in length. The true stuff of horror movies.

3 Giant Squid Giant Squid The giant squid is a deep-ocean dwelling squid in the family Architeuthidae. Giant squid can grow to a tremendous size due to deep-sea gigantism: recent estimates put the maximum size at 13 m for females and 10 m for males from the posterior fins to the tip of the two long tentacles (second only to more.

A colossal, alien monster. The Giant Squid, armed with scary suckers, tremendous tentacles and a brutal beak, the giant squid rules over its deep-sea kingdom with an iron grip.

4 Sperm Whale

The biggest 'true' predator on earth. Massive enough to engage in blood-thirsty battles with the Giant Squid, the Sperm Whale employs its lower jaw lined with steak-knife teeth as it's deadliest weapon.

5 Colossal Squid

Even more staggering in size than its cousin, the Giant Squid, the Colossal Squid can grow up to 15 meters. Lethal hooks attached to its tentacles helps it catch and drag in prey. Not much is known about this mysterious monster as a specimen has not been seen alive.

Colossal squids have dedly hooks

6 Saltwater Crocodile Saltwater Crocodile The saltwater crocodile, also known as the estuarine crocodile, Indo-Pacific crocodile, marine crocodile, sea crocodile or informally as saltie, is the largest of all living reptiles, as well as the largest riparian predator in the world.

Let's just say it has the strongest bite force. Put this thing in first

7 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 Contenders

12 Blue Ringed Octopus Blue Ringed Octopus

Looks wicked cool and is a true bad ass

13 Humboldt Squid

You have more chance of survival in the water with a Great White Shark. This underestimated squids are more aggressive than any other animal on this list. They drag fisherman off boats (like their mythical cousin the Kraken), attack divers without reason and they can ambush you from the deep. And before you know what's happening, it's already happened...

14 Banded Sea Krait

One of the most toxic snakes on earth. One bite and you could be dead.

15 Barracuda
16 Thresher Shark

At first glance you think "Oh, it doesn't look too scary, it just catches fish with its jaws" but it is one true badass. It's fast and can leap 9 feet out of the water. Their deadliest weapon is the most surprising one: their tail. They whip fish and squid with their tail, stunning, or even killing their prey. They even create shockwaves by whipping their tail in the water without even touching the fish.

17 Box Jellyfish Box Jellyfish Box jellyfish are cnidarian invertebrates distinguished by their cube-shaped medusae. Some species of box jellyfish produce extremely potent venom: Chironex fleckeri, Carukia barnesi and Malo kingi.
