Top Ten Scariest Animals

The Top Ten

1 Human Human 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.

We are the most cruel and twisted of all animals. We have failed in our existence and we have to make amends. If nothing changes we'll eventually destroy everything.

Humans beings are the strongest animals. We can do anything. We can kill sharks corcs etc. We have atomic bombs, nuclear tanks, we are such scariest animals. - kormo

We are the worst animals ever.
We created pollution, war, spread diseases, extincted hundreds of wonderful animals, destroyed forests and green spaces and if it wasn't enough. We despise each others.
We are totally laughable. A shame to this planet. - ahmedessam

Yes! we use our power for nothing but bad But there are people who care for animals and yet people are heartlessly destroying habbitacts people every living animal are made of stardust we betray animals give them a hard life killing animals is worse than killing humans animals have mothers fathers yet people kill them humans are just the crulest animal EVER worse than having canser but I will try as much to one day help someone cure canser but animals have it too and we should give loads of food to animals worldwide

2 Spider Spider

What to do when you see a spider?

1. Scream like a girl in a Justin Beiber concert (also scary) and run in circles

2. Offer a sacrifice to the spider. Offer a grasshopper or any other less scary bug. Or a human if it's huge. And if that doesn't work...

3. Buy a Flamethrower or nuke it from orbit. Thy are the best solutions. If that doesn't work than you're already dead then.

Dude why do you think girls love Justin Bieber? Oh. they're screaming of hate. idiot.

I don't get it. What's so scary about a spider? Sure, they LOOK creepy, but a normal spider can't hurt you (unless it's a tarantula). You can also kill one by stepping on. STEPPING ON IT. Come on! They don't even get that big. If your talking about a spider that CAN KILL you, I understand. But if it's the spider you see in your garage every day, then I don't understand. At all.

You can't step on all of them. Some you have to crush with books. And camel spiders, you have to shoot them to kill them, SHOOT THEM. - FFDP

AHH scary, I'm terrified for them they are freaky... if one touched my toes I'd scream my head off

Yeah, spiders should definitely be up their with wasps and sharks. Those three easily are the scariest. But spiders still peak above them because of how common they are.

3 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 need to be more specific. What kind of shark are you talking about? Reef sharks and other small sharks are actually pretty cute, and guess what else? They can't hurt you! However, Great White Sharks do eat people every once in a while (about 2 each year), but it is purely accidental. You look like seals to them, and they LOVE seals. Either way, more people get struck by lightning each year than those who get eaten by sharks, and you can live through both of them, so it would be extremely painful. I think humans and the Earth's natural power are by far scarier. I can assure you right now that none of the people who have commented on 'sharks' will not get eaten or attacked in any way by a shark.

I live in California so I always go to the beach to surf and stuff. But I can never get the thought of getting attacked out of my head. I have anxiety and so sometimes up I get really worked up about it. The thought is scary. You're having fun, and at any least expecting moment the shark can all of a sudden take grab of your foot, pull your under the water and wreck your life. Just give are the creeps.

beacause of it sharp teeth it was so scary and also when you were in the see do you imagine it that shark is in your side and ready to eat you it was so scary yeah

That thinking humans are seals thing is now a proven myth. Sharks attack humans differently than seals, they know we are different.

4 Snake Snake Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. About 600 species are venomous, some of which can be fatal to humans if no medical help is sought.

PLEASE READ: Not all snakes are 'dangerous' and 'evil'. As someone who owns a snake and has spent years researching them, I can assure that while you shouldn't go chasing snakes, many snakes, including wild snakes, are completely harmless. They have no need to bite humans unless they feel threatened, after all its not like they can fit us in their mouths. And snakes aren't always disgusting. While wild snakes carry many diseases, the same could be said for the human hand. Please educate yourself before you hate and fear these wonderful animals!

I remember as a child a very traumatic experience was when I was at a relatives friends houses I was 4 or 6 and they had an arch like tunnel and it had branches and I was walking and 4 snakes were looking right at me I remember screaming and went to my mom and they looked and saw nothing. What I think happened was this never really happened and was a nightmare(my mom can't remember it), I was just wrong and something else happened or they went away. But it doesn't matter it gave me a giant fear of snakes and when I saw a harmless one at my friends I literally ran back in. So snakes are scary

It makes me calm down kinda when there is only 10% of snakes are venomous, but still, these creatures are not to be underestimated, if a venomous snake bites you, you better run to the hospital, and then constriction snakes, crushing bones and squeezing you to death, stay away from both of them, snakes are not meant to be underestimated.

They are adorable

5 Crocodile Crocodile Crocodiles or true crocodiles are large aquatic reptiles that live throughout the tropics in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia.

You think they're stupid? They're NOT. They are one of the few animals that considers us preys, and they can also hunt sharks, Great White included. How do you kill something that ate dinosaurs thousands of years ago?

They scare me every time when I go to the beach at Florida, with such a powerful bite (the strongest), this thing will never let go of you, it must be painful.. Please help me, though the nice side of crocodiles, they are really caring mothers, just watching a mother caring for her babies just makes all of the scariness of a crocodile go away, except when you stop watching it.

Snails kill about ten times as many humans per year as crocodiles do. I'd consider snails to be very intimidating and scary, and if you see one, play dead, because they're very hard to outrun. - DCnative211

They have the strongest bits of any animal alive today

6 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognisable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

Okay people that say that tigers will just up and attack you are flat out wrong. Tigers rarely attack humans they would prefer to eat something else however this doesn't mean you can just waltz up to a tiger. If you happen to encounter one just back away slowly and respectfully.

Actually a tiger is better. They are strong but endangered.

Beware when you are going into forests of Asia!

I like turtles

7 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.

I live in Australia and I think these do not belong in Australia

Now why are great whites different from normal sharks?

I've been scared to go in the ocean ever since watching Jaws

They are beautiful yet scary. But sharks deserve respect

8 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.

This animal is THE strongest land animal in the world. It can lift a rock the height and width of a 5 foot human with one paw. Why tourists think this animal is going to be friendly and eat out of their hand just defies all logic. - mgenet

Bears will only attack you if provoked, I don't see why you should be scared of them unless there trying to maul you. (Which is not whenever you see one 50 yards away etc. )

DO NOT mess with a male bear or bear cubs. Do not run, make loud noise, and since large animals have bad gagging, STICK your hand down the throat. Trust me.

Actually species of bears such as sloth bears are much more dangerous than tigers - Christie2007

9 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.

Never mess with the king of the jungle! But tigers are scarier

Lions don't even live in jungle, Siberian tigers and Bengal tigers are bigger and stronger than lions, while the male lion is lazy and sleep all the day and the lionesses do all the job, the tiger hunts bigger animals alone and there are known cases when a tiger kills rhinos

I'm not even sure why they're considered the King of the Jungle even though they live in the savanna. They're still awesome cats. - Powerfulgirl10

King of the beasts! - Ananya

10 Cockroach Cockroach

Wood roaches are fine, but I have a weird fear that Cockroaches give you diseases by you breathing the same air as them. I don't scream when I see a cockroach, but that just shows how unsanitary they are. They are filthy, little things that are unnatural to nature. NOTE: I think some Roaches are fine, it's just Cockroaches that I hate.

I still remember that when I closed my eyes to have a nice nap. When suddenly something is crawling on my arms. I thought it was a fly. But When I opened my eyes, it was a cockroach. Worst moment ever T_T

I once held a Madagascar cockroach at a museum and it made a creepy hiss I am okay with roaches in Madagascar I do not like American roaches.

American roaches were originally in Eurasia but stowed away on boats.

THEY ARE SO SCARY because HEARD THAT WHEN THEY PEE IN your EYE, THEN YOU WILL BECOME BLIND!

The Contenders

11 Scorpion Scorpion

Only afraid of the death stalker though... Other scorpions, whatever.

Scorpion's venom can be stronger than cyanide, but it's not very deadly because they only inject it in small doses. Also, all scorpions are venomous, but only 25 species known are able to kill a human - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

They may be scary, but they're still cool animals. Just watch out for the stinger on its tail. - Powerfulgirl10

I have Scorpions that live somewhere in a rock at my house, I've found some in my pool, THEY'RE SO SNEAKY!

12 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 .

Deadliest animal on the planet. Fact! More people die from mosquitos than any other animal. They are freaky and annoying and are actually one of the few animals that I just can't stand. At least they don't crunch when you squash them. - evoxpisces

Humans kill far more than mosquitoes. This includes other humans. - LostDream258

Why is everyone scared of sharks and spiders? If you cheer for a dead spider, you cheer for catching a horrible disease from an insect and dying.

They kill more people per year than car crashes or any other unnatural deaths they should be #2, after humans - Oreos

I can't stand malaria

13 Maggot

This should be in the top 20 because they can go inside your body and lay eggs finally eat you alive! So be very careful when you take out the trash because they are small and keep maggots away.

Oh my God! They're ugly, yet weird! - Powerfulgirl10

Maggots can eat your food, flesh, body and skin.

Maggots=yucky flys do not do that much but maggots yuck

14 Alligator Alligator

Actually, you should fear crocodiles far more than alligators. They have developed a taste for human flesh. They are the ones that will eat you, not alligators. There is one crocodile that is 60 ft. tall, lives by the Nile River, and ate about 300-500 humans.

Either way, do not fear animals. They are living creatures, just like us, and shouldn't be ridiculed or prejudiced just because they LOOK or ACT a bit funny...they deserve the right to live the same happy and exciting lives of humans.

Cool looking, not scary!

Like a croc

15 Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur.

Of course, dinosaurs will be scary if they are still alive, good thing they are dead, unless you wanna see them...

It's extinct, so you don't have anything to worry about. - Powerfulgirl10

Imagine the Tyrannosaurus Rex is exist

Sereosly THIS!?! whyyy its extinct but yes it would be scary unless it's a tiny baby. but adult...that would be on #2

16 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 the best creature to have ever walked this earth. They are humble and bold. They care for their young and they protect each other. Wolves don't even attack people that often. Wolves are simply beautiful and majestic.

They're great! We wouldn't have mans best friend without them. They're also beautiful. They shouldn't be on the list. REMOVE THEM FROM THE LIST!

Contrary to popular belief, a wolf is just like any other predatory animal and they have killed many innocent people and the saying that a healthy wolf has never killed a human is completely false.

Not scary. But, Wolf is coolest animals ever in the world. - LapisBob

17 Megalodon Megalodon The megalodon is an extinct species of shark which was about 59 feet (18 meters) long and hunted in the seas until about 1.5 million years ago. It was similar to today's great white shark-but three times longer and 20 times heavier. ...read more.

It may be scary, but very interesting. Besides, it can't hurt you anymore: because it's extinct. - LostDream258

Very very large,50 feet long. Megalodon could be alive! Some people have saw it. You also can if it is really alive!

Are you kidding me, TigerSoul? A shark that's bigger than some whales doesn't scare you? Haha, I don't know what does, then

This isn't extinct. It's still alive. - AlphaQ

18 Worm Worm

Yuck they are NASTY and slimy and they are parasites that eat your insides! YUCK YUCK YUCK they can kill your animals and you, I think they are pretty creepy

Worms are seriously underrated unless your talking about tapeworms or leeches (which, by the way, is already on the list.) I'm pretty sure we wouldn't be here if we weren't for worms! All you people obsess about are wolves and blah blah blah, pretty animals.

Come on. They're useful animals and they're sometimes cute. I've picked some up before. I do find it weird that worms can still move when half of their bodies are gone. - Powerfulgirl10

This is a horrible looking worm and just look at its teeth, it also looks like a undead over grown worm with a big hole and teeth

If they are big, they are scary. - LunaMoon07

20 Naked Mole Rat Naked Mole Rat

Have you ever been out hunting one day, peaceably killing Bambi's dad, when suddenly a rainbow-colored spider comes out of nowhere and bites you? And the doctor says it was an "Arachnis Propheticus" that would show you the bane of the universe? No? Just me? Well, that makes it even worse, because nobody knows about this threat! And you know what I dreamed about while I was lying on that hospital bed? Naked. Mole. Rats. That alone would solidify them in my mind as the evilest things in existence, but it was doubled when I woke up one day and began to read a random Nintendo Power magazine, only to find it had a picture of a Naked Mole Rat in it! This must be a sign! Call up all your neighbors, get the torches and pitchforks, and drive them out to sea! Let them feel what they have made us feel: disgusted, or at least nauseous.

These guys are so cute! Plus they are immune to cancer and can survive with very little oxygen so...WHY IS IT ON HERE?!?!

They're cute, but I think they'd be cuter if they actually had fur. - Powerfulgirl10

Is it named after the song Naked?
