Top Ten Scariest Animals


The Top Ten

1 Human Human 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. They are builders of 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

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

just no

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

This can be scary but mostly that have to be careful with is the Megalodon
people say it's extinct but there lots of theories believe that is still living today.

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.

Yeah fake hoes at my school who smoke marijuana don't scare me - Demon_Kitty

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?

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 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.

I have never seen one but just seeing pictures scares me of attacks

6 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

7 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.

They don’t usually attack. They are more scared of you then you are of them. When they attack, it’s because you’ve provoked them or because it’s a mother trying to protect her cubs. - NightJinx

8 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

The bigger the pincers, the less potent it's venom is.
So just look at the pincers to see if it has potent venom.

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

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

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.

Beware when you are going into forests of Asia!

There have been very rare tiger attacks. They only attack they feel threatened or intruded. - NightJinx

10 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?

There is no such thing as a "normal shark" they have lots of types - Scooter

They are beautiful yet scary. But sharks deserve respect

No not scary at all sure you have watched jaws still not scary such a scardy cat

The Contenders

11 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.

That picture. Dear god. - Demon_Kitty

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

The deadliest animal in the WORLD, and yet an idiotic user on here by the name of @ihatetrump think WE are evil for killing them. - IceFoxPlayz

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

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

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

14 Alligator Alligator An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. The two living species are the American alligator and the Chinese alligator. Additionally, several extinct species of alligator are known from fossil remains.

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.

Actually, a boy died from an alligator attack and got eaten at Walt Disney World. So yes, you should be afraid of alligators too. - DinoLover4242

Cool looking, not scary!

I love alligators they are cute - ArcticWolf

Like a croc

15 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.

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

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

Ew disgusting. They literally eat your flesh. - Demon_Kitty

16 Centipede Centipede Centipedes are arthropods belonging to the class Chilopoda of the subphylum Myriapoda. They are mainly carnivorous and they prey apron insects, spiders, small birds and rodents, and even other centipedes.

Am I the only one who has a serious phobia of these things?
I mean, they've got so many legs... (shudder).
If the scary animal actually has a face, then it's easy to deal with. I mean, yeah, sharks are scary, but not in retrospect when you're only looking at it on the internet. Centipedes, however, make you cringe everywhere, whether it be just a thought, a picture, a video, or a real one.
When you think of a shark, though, it's just like, "Oh, sharks. Cool. "
And who put humans on the list? Sure, we are doing lots of cruel things, but there are good humans out there, too; humans that devote their lives to the well-being of animals. We can't just label our whole species as cruel because of a few cruel people who spread all of the inhumane activity in the first place. Not all humans want to hurt the environment!

If you find these tiny little scary then look up Tiger giant centipede which can be alost a ft long.. Seriously, the local ones are nothing.. Not just in comparison.

They walk weird and their bite is like a burning needle stabbing into your flesh.

My anxiety level has reached a new high. - Demon_Kitty

17 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.

This is the most venomous animal on the planet. It's venom can kill within minutes and is extremely painful. Not only this but it is practically invisible in the water and very hard to see.

This animal is worse than a great white shark in fact it's the most dangerous sea creature and and should be number one or higher.

I not taking my chances of a good life with this thing

18 Piranha Piranha A piranha or piraña, a member of family Characidae in order Characiformes, is a freshwater fish that inhabits South American rivers, floodplains, lakes and reservoirs.

They only attack you if your bleeding in the water, if your just calmly swimming you have nothing to worry about.

Most are vegetarians lol but don't swim in Amazon waters with a cut! Don't urinate either!

They are very dangerous. Watch out for these piranhas!

19 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. more.

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

I never walk into the ocean again, even though it is long dead

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

20 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!

Actually, dogs aren't evolved from wolves...they were a species all on their own - RedTheGremlin

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.

Similar to a dire wolf very aggressive and fearless

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.

22 Leech Leech Leeches are segmented worms that belong to the phylum Annelida and comprise the subclass Hirudinea. Like the oligochaetes, such as earthworms, leeches share a clitellum and are hermaphrodites.

This is literally the only animal I have a fear of, and the reason is that I don't let ANYTHING touch the tops of my feet (except socks). And these things will latch onto your feet when you wade in water and start sucking out blood. Worse than just a touch to the foot. - GhostBird

Leech are vampire worms that sucks bloods there so scary that you will never pick a worm up again.

28 Naked Mole Rat Naked Mole Rat The naked mole-rat, also known as the sand puppy, is a burrowing rodent native to parts of East Africa. It is closely related to the blesmols and is the only species in the genus Heterocephalus of the family Heterocephalidae.

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

30 Bat Bat Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight.

Vampire bats are really scare because they can drink blood, but not sucking blood that actual vampires do in myths, they lap the blood with their tongues. They're also scary because they can carry diseases of many types like rabies. Luckily they don't live in the United States, even i. California, where me and my family live in.

They're pretty cute though. I like them. - Powerfulgirl10

Bats can kill by spreading disease and are terrifying in the night.

31 Rat Rat Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.

Go ahead and say that they are cute, go ahead. Rats and mice are some of humanity's oldest enemies. The creatures gnaw up architecture, eat grain (and livestock, if the swarm is large enough), and sustained the fleas which spread Yersinia pestis, the black death. Hell, they're also capable of making people sympathize with them and their destruction, and eat up endemic species. I could spend all day naming their vices. The only good things about wild rodents are that they are reliable prey animals and that they're the reason why we allied ourselves with the cat. Sorry, but unless that rat's a pet, I'm not cuddling him anytime soon, if I keep sanity in my brain. Rats are terrifying. Hell, David Attenborough, narrator of BBC documentaries, friend of all living things, is scared of them. That's enough to prove my point, but the injuries people sustain from them and the disease explain the rest. That's enough words, now I'll shut up.

They can squeeze themselves into small flattish disk things and go under small doorway cracks in the bottom of the door.

Eww, I hate them, I am more scared of them than any other animal on this list. They are not cute, they are ugly, they scurry and jump on you, giving you diseases. And the thought of it terrifies me that I don't even want to go anywhere. Rats suck, worst animals ever, and they infest cities like New York City.

They stated. The black death I hate them

36 Hippopotamus 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.

These animals are the deadliest animals in Africa-YES including lions. They can rip your skin apart and can stab you with their long, sharp teeth. They are not afraid of anything, including lions. Hippos will hide under the water silently and when you come up, POUNCE! You're gone. Hippos may seem like fat, blubbery pigs, but inside is a monstrous beast ready to tear at skin and meat.

Hippos kill more people than any other animal they have really strong jaws that can bite a crocodile in half. They deserve 1st place not 42nd way deadliest than a shark also when they mean animals they mean all creatures apart from humans because we don't consider are selves as animals because we are more intelligent. Thanks any other creature.

Hippos have been known to kill more people than any other animal in Africa. and that includes elephants, rhinos, lions, crocodiles, leopards, and even sharks.

The only time I fear a dog is when I'm riding my bike and a dog starts chasing me. Probably only because I've been bitten by one. I love my dogs because I know them, but I don't know what another dog might do. - JAE29

When I was 3 years old I was bringing my cat to the vet, I saw a dog & I ask the owner if I could pet it, he said yes, I reached out to pet the dog & it lunged at me before it tried to attack me, luckily it didn't bite me but now I have found dogs as the most horrifying thing ever.

49 Guinea Worm

They are gross. Their eggs are in dirty drinking water and can survive stomach acids. When they hatch the go to the skin surface or even the eyes and create a painful blister. When water is put on the blister the 3ft worm comes out of the skin and you have to pull it out bit by bit and make sure it doesn't break, or you can die. Eventually you have to tie the half out worm to a pencil and carry it around and it is excruciatingly painful. Never want one of those vile pests on me.
