Top Ten Most Dangerous Animals
The Top Ten
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
Everything wrong with the human hate comments
1. These people are fine with animals eating other animals but when a human does then they are villains who deserve a slow painful death in a volcano
2. Humans are at the top of the food chain. Do you think lions hate on themselves for being near?
3. Humans also save lives
4. If a deadly animal is running towards you are you supposed to just stand there and let it eat you?
5. Humans do wage war but so do other animals
Thank you for listening (well if your a human hater you probably rage quitted after number 2) anyway I hope you people see that all this hate is stupid and must stop - Unnamed Google User Remade
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
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
One Million Deaths Every Year. The most deadly animal in the world is the mosquito. It might seem impossible that something so miniscule can kill so many people, but it's true. According to the World Health Organization, mosquito bites result in the deaths of more than 1 million people every year. And they can give you deseases.
Mosquitoes spread diseases but people kill each other from different ways:
Sell guns and then shoot
Bite (with the help of dogs)
Beat them to death
And that's what I can think of - TheAwesomeDude54
DUH! Mosquitos kill more than a million people a year by spreading disease... I can't believe this wasn't on here! - HorsebackCheerleadingGirl
They are cool, but don't go near them. Thank gosh, I don't live in a state where there are crocs or gators.
Good rule of thumb...If you see one of these in Florida, do NOT get close to it! Seriously, that should go without saying. Getting eaten by a crocodile is not a pleasent exxperience.
The salt water crocodile has the strongest bite on earth at 6,000 pounds of bite force its bite rivals the t-rex. Anything that come near is dead. Nothing should get in this living fossils way. It can flip a canoe. And can kill you. It is worlds stealthiest predator and has no predator it is massive at well over a ton its the worlds biggest crocodile. It is a modern dinosaur. Get it angry and you will be bitten... Very hard. - nando
It is the biggest but it is not the strongest the strongest croc is a nile crocodile - MegadethFan07
Have you heard of Gator Land in Flordia? They keep crocodiles and alligators there and overfeed them and beat them :'( - lillyanna
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
While they are dangerous, for every human killed by a shark, 25 million sharks have been killed by humans. - noisyboy43
Sharks attack people because they are in their territory or they smell blood. - Userguy44
Sharks will not attack you unless you are in their territory. - Ummmmmm
Okay, after doing some research on number of deaths caused by snakes, snakes are actually deserving of a higher spot. It must always be emphasized however that humans are a far larger threat to any of the species on this list then they are to us. - CocoBird
Only %15 of species are dangerous to humans, rests are just harmless noodles
Uh.. it really depends on what snake, I mean, most of these things aren't poisonous or small. Meeting one will kill you? It didn't kill me. The worst that could happen is getting a slight pain lasting for a few seconds unless you're in some jungle. Not really dangerous to us humans in the city...
Can kill you within minutes. If you're on your own and you meet one of these, oh dear. You're screwed. Run for your life. - icepaw99
Err, change that to 4th or 5th. Snakes are actually more dangerous than crocodiles or hippos, especially in places such as India where there are incredibly venomous species that are likely to come into contact with local populations. - CocoBird
The hippo has giant killer tusks that can be a foot long. It can easily bite a crocodile in half. It looks slow but it can run 20 mph. It is the third biggest land animal and can be 4 tons of super mean killer. It kills the most people in Africa and can destroy a van. They are awesome animals but don't get to close or you will be charged by fury. - nando
Hippo kills more than shark and crocodile, I believe. Since it was more sensitive and look harmless. BECAUSE it looks harmless, people often cross the boundaries hippos make. Yawning is actually their way to say "Back Off" ehich we intercepted as an entertainment. And so we're doomed. But shark already give us a crystal clear warning as soon as their fin surfaces. Plus, shark and such don't actually eat humans. It only harm us when trathened or curious of our seal-like swimming and posture. When it realized we're much less meatier, it will most likely release us
Okay you can say hippos are nice and peaceful in cartoons but life isn't that simple hippo can rip a car into 9999,999pieces
A white tiger mauled and nearly killed Roy Horn (of Siegfried and Roy)
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! )
They are much BIGGER than lions they are BIG as Bears they run fast almost as a cheetah strengh as a Elephant so watch out - SmoothCriminal
A tiger is about the size of an adult america black bear and only runs roughly half the speed of a cheetah - assassin23
they have killed 3000 people in just 2 yrs.
Lions are only kind or protective for you because of something you did in the past to make it obey you, or you hit it or killed one of its pack members. Otherwise, you are dead if you are in its territory. - Ummmmmm
Dangerous, but beautiful. Seriously, lions look amazing despite being dangerous. Just don't touch them in real life. - Userguy44
they say if you can here a lion roar than your on its terroritary human vs lion without weapons the human stands no chance - Elvisjackson
Lion will smash a shark and it is the most dominant land animal of all time! It definitely kicks ass in Africa!
Actually the African Rock Python has been known to kill and devour lions. Also, dominance of an animal all depends on where it is; for example, a penguin is able to survive cold, harsh environments, but would ultimately perish if it was relocated into Death Valley. - LostDream258
African elephants are more dangerous as well as more larger than Indian elephants.
Elephants aren't dangerous! People mistreat them and it makes me sick! STOP POACHING! STOP CIRCUSES! - lillyanna
Elephants can be very unpredictable. They can beat you into a pulp. Though I voted for humans, I agree that the elephant is a very dangerous animal.
An elephant will tear you to pieces. But that's only if you mess with it so you should be safe
My sisters hate spiders once she bout had a heart attack my sisters make me kill every single god damn spider
Top 10 scariest? Yes in my opinion. Top 10 most dangerous? Even the most venomous ones are usually only deadly to children and people with allergies to them or something, so no. - CocoBird
Kills you in seconds with a single bite. A black widow's venom is so strong that it poisons you while turning your blood into the form of butter. The last thing I would want is to meet a huge spider. That is why I only travel to North America or Europe.
there bites can be very poisonous and they creepy but they do keep the bug population down
No they’re gentle giants - SilverTheHedgehog
No, rhinos have poor eyesight and will only attack if provoked - SilverTheHedgehog
These guys re extinct now why are they on the list
One bite your done
Lol this isn’t even the most dangerous snake. Black mambas are far more dangerous - CocoBird
It's a snake, so basically already mentioned
These count as a snake, but if you want any info, it is the largest venomous snake and a whack from its tail is enough to shatter your skull. So yeah! Just your average snake which can kill you if it wants to. - favouredlist314
Watching them fight is one of the most epic things I have ever seen
Komodo Dragons Are Very Powerful They Can Rip u in one bite They also have Venom That means if u do get Bit And Run away U die Anyway
It has more than 1000 deadly bacterias in their mouth, sharp (I mean it) teeth, very strong neck, all enough to bite you, kill you, swing you around, and rip you to pieces, then swallow you.
It's the largest lizard in the world, it has bacteria in its mouth and is poisonous. It's fast for its size and can swim and climb. It's extremely dangerous and should be higher on the list.
While Hyenas look and act dangerous, they are just like dogs. All they do is protect their families from dangers they can detect. I'm pretty sure you would want to protect your families from tons of wild predators. We don't have to face predators since, well, we don't have any. - Ummmmmm
Dangerous to cubs but in a fight they aren't all that powerful compared to other animals they're size roughly (humans,gorillas,baboons & chimps I think,lions,tigers etc etc) - Unnamed Google User Remade
I was born and raised in Uganda. People ask me about lions and things like that. No. Those are not something we worried about. Hippos are scary. But people do not understand when I tell them. People underestimate their size and insanity. One time hyenas came into the outskirts of the village to get into eel baskets someone had left out, and the villagers made everyone get onto their roofs rather than try to fight or defend themselves.
Hyenas. Hyenas are so terrifying that in 15 years living in America, I refuse to watch The Lion King. I refused to go to my friend's home because he had a spotted cattle dog that looked like a hyena. I had a very real panic attack at a zoo when I heard a hyena call. I wouldn't have gone if I'd known they kept them. Hyens give absolutely zero about injuries sustained while hunting. The one gang leader where I'm from had a hyena he kept on a chain, and no one messed with him.
With hyenas, there is no chance of a fight.
I went on a safari in Africa, and spotted some hyenas. I wasn't terrified because I thought they were gonna attack me. What I did saw was that they were eating a dead animal left by another animal. Not only they are scavengers, but they steal lion or cheetah cubs. - LaST_LiGHT
They may be dangerous animals, but they're not evil (or perhaps, not all of them are evil). People need to stop treating The Lion King like it's a documentary. The stereotype of hyenas being wicked or evil is just a myth and not the truth, and as a matter of fact, one of the worst and most offensive of all stereotypes.
If you do your research, you'll see that hyenas can be as lovable as lions.
More dangerous than most animals on this list. Even more venomous than most snakes. Should be in the top 10 easily. - Userguy44
These "helpless" looking things are actually your death. Box jellyfish are probabaly the most deadly, I don't know why they are down so low.
To avoid these deadly gorgeous animals just don't go to Australia - lillyanna
These things are much more dangerous than most people realize. The big problem with them is that they tend to wash up on beaches in Australia, and it’s easy to accidentally step on their tentacles, which are incredibly venomous. - CocoBird
Killer whale does not live up to its name! They don't kill people! They are beautiful and amazing! They only eat fish and sometimes Sharks!
An Orca could beat any animal in the sea; the only creature which would have a chance would be a sperm whale.
1. It is the fastest mammal in the sea.
2. It is highly intelligent.
3. It has deadly teeth.
4. It is massive.
ARMED, FAST, BIG &SMART
If Orcas preyed on humans, they could easily demolish you. Killer Whales are one of the most intelligent creatures on this planet, so they obviously would use pretty much any tactic and advantage they can use to kill their victims. That's what makes them unique from other animals. Rather than just killing everything in the same way, Orcas like to mix it up and try something different every once in a while. The tactic I like the most is "The Wave Knocker". They go barely beneath the surface of the water and then they swim very fast to create waves that will knock a creature off of a glacier.
First, they're called Orca
Second, they shouldn't be on this list because they only attack when you attack them!
Third, GET THEM OFF THIS LIST!
Fourth, Shut down marine land! they abuse the crap out of these poor gorgeous creatures! - lillyanna
Although lion Cubs may look cute and fun to play with, resist it. Lions and Lionesses could easily and most certainly attack you. Kill you, is the word. - Ummmmmm
Lions were mentioned above. Why again and again?
I don't think Asian lions are more powerful than the king of the jungle aka African lions
Lion's are dangerous for any one
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
Depends on the species entirely, and whether or not they have cubs. A polar bear with cubs would easily be number 3 on this list, if they lived closer to humans, which they are really only near small populations. Grizzlies with cubs are no joke either, and grizzlies, while not nearly as aggressive as polar bears, are still incredibly unpredictable and there is no guaranteed way to survive an encounter with one, especially if it has already eaten a human previously, because bears do have a tendency to view humans as prey if they have already killed one. However, in most cases, there should be a way to survive an encounter so long as you don’t startle the bear or show it fear. Black bears though can be intimidated unlike grizzlies, so they’re easier to deal with. - CocoBird
Grizzlies are our worst enemies in North America because they can tear you and mauled the living hell outta you. Now I'm afraid to go hiking in California!
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!
300 Deaths per Year
Ooh let's go jump in its mouth
Who put this here geez reptile haters - GatorBoy
If I were you, I'd shut my mouth. Many people have gotten injured by these menaces. You could easily get killed by one of these. - Ummmmmm
Heavens, we head this
Terribly deadly and the only animal that will attack it is a honey badger but there used to killing lions anyway
and they will stand up to a swarm of killer bees never mind a black mamba!
These things are probably the most dangerous snake in my opinion. Highly aggressive, they strike blindingly fast, they are venomous enough to be deadly at a 100% rate if untreated, which treatment options are scarce where they live, and to top it off, they are one of the fastest snakes in the world, moving up to 12.5 mph. Oh, and on top of that, they are often found in trees where they blend in. - CocoBird
Super fast and live in a area where there is lots of tall grass for cover so can be hard to see.
They can kill you in 5 minutes and they are extremely fast and tall. They like to live in banana gardens.
Very quick and very dangerous and they eat meat
So do humans, dogs, cats, and many other animals. So your point here is? - LostDream258
What, This should be way higher. It is very fast and very aggressive. It will rip your flesh up.
They are powerful and can be behind you because there stealth
They are so deadly that they can kill black caimans!
? Rats gang up and kill humans you say? ? I'm not sure I understand... Hey... Um... Are you in therapy... You belong in therapy... Since when do rats GANG UP and KILL human beings. They're an animal the size of our hand... And apparently... They can kill us... Rats are innocent and loyal. You people carry around a disease far more infectious than the plague. It's a disease called stupidity.
Domesticated rats are loyal and innocent. Sewer rats and others are deadly since they carry diseases after being bitten by fleas. - IceFoxPlayz
Rats are cute... They are intelligent and friendly. They weren't the origin of the plague; fleas were. The fleas bit the rats and the rats bit the humans who were trying to kill them. Everyone seems to hate them and want to kill them on sight. It's sad, really. These poor creatures...
Yes, rats have the potential to be incredibly dangerous as we saw with the plague, but at the same time they can’t really deal with cats at all, and are terrified even just of the scent of cats. - CocoBird
What the hell, a rat is more dangerous than a Komodo Dragon? May I ask how exactly? O_o
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. Look under your bed- RIGHT NOW- there is probably one there waiting for you... and I like that I like easy cat such as easy leopards space leopards okay. Space leopards with laser beams! DANGEROUS! They are about to blow up the planet RIGHT NOW! What are you waiting for?!?!?! Every animal is dumb compared to the leopard.
Leopards are cool. They have no respect for lions.
You don't wanna go near their dens and pet their "adorable" little babies because "adorable" big mom is gonna kill you
1 of my favorite cats I also like jaguars and lions
Wow that should be able to go to in the tee the because it's a tiger
Yes, of the Tigers
40-100 Deaths per Year
So do we need to be scared of the avengers then?
Wrong species. This is a human.
We’re talking about the spider, not the superhero. Wrong picture, whoever added this. Lol - Misfire
The person wanted to mean the spider but messed up. - TriggerTrashKid
They are not tired, they stop because of the heat idiot, u so stoopid
Idiots do you have common sense how can a cheetah outrun a car
No, one type of falcon can out run this. Besides, 5 seconds later of run, cheetah are tired
They are faster than Ferrari car
Wolves are indeed very dangerous if you are in its territory. Just like dogs, wolves can be tamed, too. Unfortunately it is very illegal in some countries to have a wolf as a pet. But, you can keep wolf hybrids if the law allows you to. - Ummmmmm
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.
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.
We just did Elephants
African Elephants are both large and scary.
500 Deaths per year
African Elephants are very scary!
ahh its a pretty little coloured frog lets pick it up DONT TOUCH THEM there the most poisonous land animal on earth just 6 micrograms could kill you and the poison is so fast working there is no antidote - Elvisjackson
Ehhh, while these things are venomous to a borderline comical level, I don’t think they are exactly aggressive or anything. The reason they are as venomous as they are is so that they can avoid danger in the first place. - CocoBird
One touch and BYE see you in heaven or hell... depends on you
Their so tiny and pretty but deadly. - cosmo
Well, this is getting into some awfully hypothetical territory. It’s hard to say which extinct animals would be the most dangerous to us in the cases of ones we never interacted with, and as such, their threat levels are kinda vague. - CocoBird
They dangerous but they not here so stop worrying about these two dinosaurs
Spinosaurus should be at the top if they where alive
Spinosaurus isn't around anymore. - cosmo
40,000 Deaths per year
Wolves are indeed dangerous if you are in their territory. You should never consider contacting a wolf or petting it. Especially if it has pups. Like dogs, they are very territorial and are careful about who they let in their pack/ territory. - Ummmmmm
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 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.
Wolves are not innocent, they are territorial and protective of their pack and wouldn't hesitate to kill anything that comes into their territory.
Oh geez these things are venomous, but still not as dangerous as the black mamba despite being far more venomous. - CocoBird
Inland Taipan is a snake. Snakes already mentioned
They hold enough venom to kill 100 humans
The most deadliest snake
Very dangerous - Subaru
*zap* Say hello to death! - TriggerTrashKid
It should be number one they can bite your hand into your face
The person below me has to be troll, or he doesn't know how Rhino's actually kill people.
They only attack if provoked. Not really that dangerous. - DinoLover4242
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?
Good thing this isn’t alive right now. If I saw this thing even 500 feet away from me, I would drop dead.
As a single animal, it is perhaps most fierce killing machine so far in history of life on Earth.
Yes, they are probably the most dangerous animals of all time! But one problem... They're extinct. - micahisthebest
Most aggressive when provoked!
They charge right at you at 30mph and tries to trample. Just imagine how painful that would be coming from an animal with horns and weighs more than 1000lbs.
The Cape Buffalo. And you thought charging Bulls were bad.
No wonder they're also known as black death
Ugh... hate these guys! Plus, I live in Australia. I am never going in anything bigger than a pool now.
that big looking stone is a fish that looks just like a stone but when you touch its spine it hurts so much that victims want the stung limb removed - Elvisjackson
I know people who have accidentally bushed a Stonefish and later begged the doctors to amputate their arms. They can even cause semi-permanent kidney failure.
I live in Hawaii, so ever since I found out about these I've felt trapped. Water over here, water over there, I CAN SEE BOTH SIDES OF THE ISLAND AT ONCE! AAH!
Whatsoever is that
Deadly but not to deadly
At least its not as big as a plate :/ - lillyanna
Hate it and I still have a blood mark on my wall after splatting this
I used this to kill john doe
They are the biggest species of cats and it kills bears - that is why these days bears climb trees.
I think this extraordinary should be no. 1.
Well they are extinct but they were very dangerous so that's why I agree.
We are screwed if we find out that they survived.
If that were true, and they did survive, would not we have been screwed by now? Considering how many people have already crossed the ocean by boat of a course of thousands of years. I am sorry, but your argument is invalid. - LostDream258
Theories have uncovered that the Megalodon is still alive. I think it's still alive. But there's not much evidence. - LaST_LiGHT
If they existed they would be all over the world
Yes, piranhas do look scary, correct? Although, they rarely attack humans. - LostDream258
Their teeth are as sharp as knives so they'll rip your flesh.
They are not dangerous unless they're hungry
Poor people use their teeth as combs. Seriously.
A scorpion almost KILLED a little girl. I feel sorry about her :(. Anyway stay away from them!
Anything with a mindset to kill would do that with a girl left helpless (young of course) - Doggus
They're beautiful but one bite = welcome to heaven
A death trapper scorpion or something can kill twenty humans with a single drop in less than five minutes. - Silverfroststorm
Scorpions were spotted in American Airlines planes! I'm never going in one of those again. I get paranoid. - LaST_LiGHT
DUHHH they could easily kill you but we still lov'em
People who know someone killed by a horse, just to let ya know, they killed themselves. I'm about to be killed by a horse because I love her so much and since she is on the verge of passing away... I'll be gone soon too.
We're around horses every day and thousands have been killed, injured, or crippled forever just from one accident. Imagine if horses actually did want to hurt us!
If a race horse or any horse breaks a back leg bone, it is usually put down. - Doggus
Horse is transporter the people, (warrior, ninja, hero) and speed, beautiful power. Good kicking foot, super warrior.
How are alligators this low? They are clearly more dangerous than most of the animals listed above them. - CocoBird
I think they are the same as crocs in how dangerous they are.
NEEDS to be higher! - missyweirdo
Who put this here
PEOPLE THESE DAYS - GatorBoy
The picture is creepy I wanna be a survivalist so can anyone tell me which part of Brazil they live in
The most dangerous spider
This should be in the top 10
50 deaths per year
Whoops. I accidentally voted for this. Oh well. :/ - Misfire
Orca should be lower on this list
They kill less people then shark
Blue ringed octopus should at least in the top 10 there is no anti venom
Even though there's no cure, there aren't many victims. - Silverfroststorm
This should be no 3
