Top 10 Most Dangerous Animals In Australia


The Top Ten

1 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.

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

2 Inland Taipan Inland Taipan

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

3 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.

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

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.

They are deadly

5 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.

This is the only shark that can live in rivers.

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

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

7 Blue Ringed Octopus 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

8 Cone Snail

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.

10 Brown Snake

The Contenders

11 Dingo 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.

12 Red Back Spider
13 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.

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

14 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.

15 Tiger Snake

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

16 Humans Humans Humans are not exactly wild animals, but not domesticated, either. Proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white. Builders of the global civilization.

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.

17 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.

18 Eastern Brown Snake

Though Inland Taipan are more venomous Eastern Brown Snake kill more

19 Koala 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
