Top 10 Most Dangerous Animals In Australia

The Top Ten

1 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.

What's the most venomous animal out there? This thing. Seriously this thing is terrifyingly deadly. They have these little injectors hidden within their tentacles, and they can pop out (40,000 g's) 10 times faster than a car air bag. Also they're hundreds on each tentacle, and they're hundreds of tentacles on a Jellyfish. Also death is incredibly quick. Interestingly, Box Jellyfish venom can be treated with vinegar.

The most venomous animal in the world

Not surprised this is number one! I'm not some austraillian expert but I know that these are VERY deadly!

2 Inland Taipan The Inland Taipan, is a venomous snake of the taipan genus commonly found in semi-arid regions of central east Australia. The inland taipan is not just a venomous snake it's considered the most venomous snake in the world by many people. When compared drop for drop and based on the median lethal dose more.

By far the most venomous snake in the world. 1 drop is enough to kill 100 people. However there are good news. This snake only lives in The Outback and they're incredibly shy. So the Fierce Snake that you once thought it was wasn't so fierce after all.

Very deadly this could stop you from breathing

The most venomous land snake of the world says everything. T - Kiteretsunu

You Don’t Go Near Me!

3 Blue Ringed Octopus

Another serious threat for those that wish to explore the waters of Australia is the blue-ringed octopus � one of the most toxic sea creatures in the world found off the coast of Australia, New Guinea, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Even though the octopus is only the size of a golf ball, there is no known antidote for its powerful venom. It causes motor paralysis, eventually leading to cardiac arrest. First aid treatment consists of pressure on the wound and mouth-to-mouth breathing that can last for several hours. - Irina2932

With one fufufnuvfvnufvnfuv you can kill 23 persons jsnwusnwsuhnun

They are dangarous! If I ever saw one I would run like flash!

4 Saltwater Crocodile

Out of all the animals in Australia, I don't think there's any animal that can cause more brutal deaths than this crocodile. Crocodiles have a bite strength of about 5000lbs per square inch. That's the strongest bite in the animal kingdom. Not enough? Well they bite your leg, then they hang on to it, and then they spin their bodies around, dragging you around along with them. The crocodile doesn't stop until something like a leg tears off. Imagine your leg being hang onto by a crocodile's powerful jaw, then having your body constantly spinning around, splashing your face on the bloody water, and this death ride doesn't stop until your leg comes off. After your leg comes off, the crocodile throws you off balance, pushes you underneath the water, and then it leaves you there to drown or bleed to death. Surviving is incredibly unlikely. They strike at the most unpredictable moments and unpredictable speeds, they're super aggressive, and they kill thousands of people a year. Also don't ...more

They are fast as hell! They could eat you in a minute. They aren't like alligators who can actually be kind of docile if they have eaten. Crocs don't care if they have eaten. They are gonna eat you too! Fast!

Intelligent, stealthy, fast and unimaginably powerful! A run-in with a Salty would give you a 10% chance of survival. There is no antidote for a Croc unlike Box Jellyfish and Taipans.

Once they got grip of you your dead un less your hulk saltwater croc strongest bite in the animal kingdom!

5 Stone Fish

Stepping on these fish are painful as hell! And the worst part, you'll likely never notice them because their camouflage is too damn perfect! It's the most venomous fish in the sea. However, if you do step on this fish, you can cure the pain with hot water.

The stone fish is the worlds most dangerous fish. You can unknowingly step on one which makes the venom go on your foot. You can die in two hours.

The stone fish is so poisones you have to run to the hospital in 10 Minutes and get so treated it is so poisones

I would pretty much avoid swimming in northern Australia, it has Saltwater crocs, Box Jelly, Cone Snail, Stone fish, southern is the safest part to swim in because there is non of that according to all the habitat map

6 Cassowary The cassowaries are ratites in the genus Casuarius and are native to the tropical forests of New Guinea, nearby islands, and northeastern Australia.

As an Australian I can totally imagine a war charge on these. Light horse, more like Light cassowary

Cassowaries just won't attack people but there also capable of gutting dogs and small horses. Another fact is that these animals are the 3rd tallest and 2nd heaviest living birds.

Hello don't ever mess with cassowaries they are so danngegerous

7 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.

This is the only shark that can live in rivers.

8 Dingo The dingo is a wild dog found in Australia. Its exact ancestry is debated, but dingoes are generally believed to be descended from semi-domesticated dogs from East or South Asia, which returned to a wild lifestyle when introduced by Aborigines into Australia.

Actually, yes, these animals are very dangerous. One of Australia's deadliest dogs. I remember reading a book about how people got attacked by them and to stay away from them. A boy was killed and his younger brother got wounds to the legs. Ten years later, a little girl was waiting for a boat, and she wandered off. Dingos attacked her and her legs were hurt terribly. Her wounds could have been infect too, if she wasn't treated in time. When your in Australia, WATCH OUT! Also, dingos are found in Fraser Island so STAY AWAY!

They are one of the most powerful dogs in the world.

Dingos Are Sweethearts Screw You!

9 Brown Snake
10 Australian Paralysis Tick

The name is not misleading. These disgusting creatures, upon occasion, lay eggs in your blood stream. Those who are allergic suffer even more and can die within days. That will scare a lot of people.

The Contenders

11 Cone Snail

Several human deaths have been attributed to them. Their venom, a complex concoction of hundreds of different toxins, is delivered via a harpoonlike tooth propelled from an extendable proboscis. There is no antivenin for a cone snail sting, and treatment is limited to merely keeping victims alive until the toxins wear off.(Nat. Geo., Geographic Cone) - Aleehorselover

I like to imagine the Cone Snail laughing at peoples' faces who pick them up and think they're beautiful and harmless, only then to harpooned by this thing.

It shoots harpoons

The harpoons are poisones

12 Funnel Web Spider

These guys have seriously dangerous. Also they're enormous, and so are their fangs. Their fangs are longer than an Eastern Brown Snake's fangs (at least from what I've), and the Funnel Web Spider's fangs are strong enough to bite through fingernail. They're also super aggressive.

13 Red Back Spider

It is deadly

14 Irukandji Jellyfish

It can make you have trouble breathing and you can die

It can kill and make your heart stop

This should be number 1

15 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.

Dangerous in strength, but not very dangerous in Human deaths. Seriously, shark attacks are so rare. You're 30 times more likely to be struck by lightning.

They are pretty much all over the world

16 Tiger Snake

It is very true

They arnt the most venomous snake in Australia but will still kill a man in around an hour and much more agrresive than any other snake so it should be higher than the inland tipan because that species of tipan doesn't come across people and is less dangerous

17 Humans Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

A few of these are safer in North America. As the Olsen girls visit Australia (in the 2000 film, Our Lips Are Sealed), the teens are greeted by some of them during the sisters' witness protection program as the girls discover a crime. - playstationfan66

The most dangerous "animal" doesn't only hurt other animals, but hurts it's own species, and is destroying nature.


We kill more than all put to gather don't only cont humen kills

18 Koala The koala is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae and its closest living relatives are the wombats.

They could scratch you but probably only able to kill a newborn.

It's so cute, it can kill you. #Sarcasm
(Does this site support hastags? )

You Mean Drop Bear?

Koala Wouldn’t Kill You.

My Favourite Australian Animal. 😍😍👉😭😭

19 Eastern Brown Snake

Though Inland Taipan are more venomous Eastern Brown Snake kill more

This should be much higher up. - truckturner

If its exitct why is it deadly

22 Kangaroo The kangaroo is a marsupial from the family Macropodidae. In common use the term is used to describe the largest species from this family, especially those of the genus Macropus: the red kangaroo, antilopine kangaroo, eastern grey kangaroo, and western grey kangaroo.

Only 1 person has ever died from a kangaroo because we know how to treat them

Get kicked and you won't hop another day.

24 Death Adder

Death Adder is also one of the most evil video game villains of all time. He appeared in Golden Axe for Sega Genesis. He should be in the top 10 most evil video game villains list along with Ganondorf, Dr. Cortex, Team Rocket, The Mediogre, Xenmas and Tabuu. - playstationfan66

Zebras aren't in Australia, who added this?

Troll item - ElSherlock

31 Blue-tongued Skink

Seriously? Blue-tongued skinks aren't even close to being dangerous. - DinoLover4242

32 Coastal Taipan

They're everywhere! They're aggressive! They also like to live where humans like to live. When you put a highly venomous, aggressive snake where people like to live, you're going to have a bad time. - MEparandriod

33 King Brown Snake
34 Bluefin Tuna

To prey, yes. To us, not at all.


35 Pig A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar, along with other species; related creatures outside the genus include the peccary, the babirusa, and the warthog.

Alligators don't live in Australia. They only live in America and China.

37 Tasmanian Devil
38 Snail Snail is a common name that is applied most often to land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod molluscs.

A snail killed my friend because of the poison on its slime

Snail? Like a cone snail? If so, then yes, it's dangerous

Were do you get this info

43 Crow
44 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.
