Top Ten Most Dangerous Animals


The Top Ten

1 Humans 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.

People are responsible for more death than any other species. I don't understand why humans think we're so special and own the world when really we're just one species of animal among many. The planet would be better off if humans had never existed, I believe.

We killed some the animal species, and started wars that took the lives of millions, and we have life threatening bombs. - MrCoolC

Humans kill animals they even kill each other there are more people killed every year by serial killers and murders than there are by any animal in the whole world so we are the most dangerous animal

Animals kill animals too. It's called the food chain, and we're on top. Someone has to be! - Blight

Out of all the animals here, and based on what kills the most people, humans sare most dangerous. The truth is, people taste bad, so nothing really eats us.

Not that dangerous, to be honest. Mosquitoes are the most dangerous. - Blight

Do you hate yourself?
It's not our fault if we have disabilities or an illness.
Danger is everywhere ever since cavemen.
Imagine a caveman is trying to hunt for an animal but accidentally kills or injures another caveman.
But they would've also killed or injured cavemen without hunting for animals.
They probably began wars with rocks and wood.

2 Mosquito Mosquito Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

Mosquitoes might not seem as scary and big as the animals listed above, but is indeed the most dangerous animal in the world. Mosquitoes have the highest death toll of any animal, killing 1 million people annually by spreading malaria. I have heard somewhere that they have caused 50% of all human deaths in history, excluding wars and disasters. - m16lion9460

Humans and animals have fought a lot but God put us in charge and a dog is are best friend

Man! Mosquitos are the worst!
I got huge bumps when I was one & am allergic to them which makes it 100x worse. I even have mosquito nets!
But be careful: female's suck blood but males are hrmless to humans.

Humans aren't animals

4 Shark Shark Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.

You are more likely to be killed by lightning than to die by a shark so sharks aren't that dangerous

You are more likely to be killed by a dancing pineapple in your dream to be honest - styLIShT

They won't attack you if you don't attack or run from them. - RoseWeasley

While they are dangerous, for every human killed by a shark, 25 million sharks have been killed by humans. - noisyboy43

Tip: just don't go near a tiger and you're no longer dead meat - lillyanna

Here is your executioner. - TriggerTrashKid

Tigers are the natural powerhouse of the big cats. If you Took a
A 500 pound water buffalo and put in a lions territory it would take a whole pride to even get it to its knees. But, a tiger would need its self because a tiger could kill that water buffalo in a matter of seconds. And tigers can hold their own against Siberian brown bears and are one of the few animals who see us as a natural prey source. (Scary! )

17 Bear Bear Bears are mammals of the family Ursidae. Bears are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans, with the pinnipeds being their closest living relatives.

1. Make a little bit of noise.
2. Don't bring your dog with you.
3. Never feed or approach it.
4. Never make eye contact.
5. Never go between a mom bear and her cubs.
6. Don't run away.
7. Don't climb a tree.
8. If a bear touches you, drop to the ground and play dead. Lie on your stomach, clasp your hands behind your neck, and use your elbows and toes to avoid being rolled over. If the bear does roll you, keep rolling until you land back on your stomach. Stay still and do not struggle or scream. A defensive bear will stop attacking once it feels you are not a threat. Do not move until you are absolutely sure the bear has left the area.
9. Use scentless shampoo so you don't attract the bear.
10. If you see bear dropping near your campsite move to another campsite. - lillyanna

Grizzly! Forgive Me! - TriggerTrashKid

No, no, no. Our worst enemy is Donald Trump. Grizzlies and peaceful if you leave them alone. - LaST_LiGHT

I like bears, but it's common fact that bears are extremely dangerous and I would not like to meet one. Did you know that a male bear will kill any cubs that come into his territory. In conclusion, I find bears fascinating, but they are VERY dangerous!

I saw a leopard having a tea party in my backyard. Smart animals have tea parties and smart = dangerous. Also in my school we are all leopards.

26 Black Rhino

No, rhinos have poor eyesight and will only attack if provoked - SilverTheHedgehog

27 Grey Wolf

Contrary to popular belief, wolves, even healthy ones, have attacked and killed people, and not in self defense. Just read "The Fear of Wolves: A Review of Wolf Attacks on Humans" and you'll see that, hundreds of people were killed by wolves in India throughout the 19th-20th centuries, and the victims were almost always children or young women. If wolves were really killing out of self defense, they would kill more hunters/trappers, not stalk and eat defenseless targets. This is consistent with predatory, not defensive behaviour.

Wolves suck

Hey guys, why is this on here? 2 people are killed a century nowadays. They gave us dogs. They keep the elk from eating too many seedlings. Want to see what life without them is? Just ask the old Yellowstone.

Sneaky, fast, strong and don't work solo. If one doesn't get you, another will.

30 Wolf Wolf Often in/from packs, Wolves are carnivorous Canines that come in various colours and breeds, and have evolved to Dogs. Some breeds of Wolves are, like Dogs, domesticated, to become a Working Dog.

Wolves are naturally afraid of humans and try to avoid them at all costs, so for a person to be killed by a wolf they must have been being pretty stupid. Wolves form strong family bonds much like ours with our families. They care for each other so much they even sacrifice themselves for their loved ones. When two males get into an altercation, they're mate will pretend to be scared and hide under his neck, really she's protecting his neck from the other male.

Everyone thinks of wolves as mean animals because of the folk tales, but really if people would just stay away from them there would be no problem, but people can be stupid and go disturb a wolf and get their head chopped off. And this makes people mad, and they go and kill innocent wolves, and because of people, wolves are now endangered.

Wolves are not innocent, they are territorial and protective of their pack and wouldn't hesitate to kill anything that comes into their territory.

Wolves, like all animals, are fully capable of being dangerous. They are aggressive and territorial.

It also had a tremendous bite force, the strongest of any Dinosaur and living terrestrial animal. Its bite force reached up to 12,800 pounds (roughly more.

First of all,...WHY would this even be mentioned when I don't know THEY HAVE BEEN DEAD FOR LIKE 369 MILLION YEARS?! second of all<if you hear the ground rattle and your door nob weakly move..RUN

The Tyrannosaurus is the most dangerous land animal besides humans. I mean, would you want to be trapped in a room with a mosquito carrying malaria and you only have a mosquito repellent or would you want to be stuck in a room with a Tyrannosaurus carrying a sword?

As a single animal, it is perhaps most fierce killing machine so far in history of life on Earth.
