Top Ten Scariest Animals


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

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. - AnimeDrawer

I had a nightmare about them where they brutally killed one of my favorite fictional characters

Okay, who voted for this? Rats are adorable and not scary at all. Look at that picture! I want to cuddle it..

22 Piranha Piranha

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!

Remember this is scariest not most dangerous so I have to go with this I mean it can kill US.

23 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.

I saved one. Lol. Too bad I didn't get a chance to observe on it because in my home there's no such thing as privacy - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

25 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.

Also parasites and weasels (kinda) are scary.

Naked Molerat? Gulper Eel? The Box jelly is much more frightening - Johnnyt800

26 Wasp

Ever since one of these snuck into my pajamas overnight and stung my armpit in the morning, I have been TERRIFIED of them!

Wasps are so terrifying! They're like flying spiders, they're so creepy. And they'll attack you too for no apparent reason! It HURTS

They used to terrify me.. Now they just tick me off cause they make nests EVERYWHERE

They harm people for no reason? Really? That never happened to me despite encountering wasps so many times... - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

29 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.

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

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

Vamipre bats biting your throat... ugh with the disease (raibes is the most common)

30 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.

Look up a lamprey on google images and run for your life

These nasty blood sucking animals are too nasty... I can't even stand them

32 Dog Dog Domesticated house hold pets that have evolved from wolves . They are sometimes bred with other species of wolves or dogs to create desirable purebreds or a new species of dogs.

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

Once when I was 6 years old, my neighbor's dog attacked me and bit my arm, it stung like crazy and I needed stitches, but dogs are still cute and great pets. - Catacorn

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.

33 Carpenter Ant

If any of you have seen Indiana Jones and the crystal skull you know what I'm talking about. I saw it when I was ten and for a year afterwards I was afraid of getting out of bed because I thought they would swarm out and gore me. They give me nightmares that had me waking up crying.

34 Giant Squid Giant Squid The giant squid is a deep-ocean dwelling squid in the family Architeuthidae. Giant squid can grow to a tremendous size due to deep-sea gigantism: recent estimates put the maximum size at 13 m for females and 10 m for males from the posterior fins to the tip of the two long tentacles (second only to more.

Imagine being pulled underwater by one of these things!

I have nothing against these, unless they actually WANT to kill you. - Powerfulgirl10

Imagine if this thing took you to a deep blue

At the aquarium I saw jellyfish, I was super scared, I closed my eyes to the last tank and thought it was a giant was the seal and sea lion exhibit thank god.

38 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.

39 Ogre-Faced Spider

When I was looking at the list, I saw this vote. I looked it up and I almost peed my pants. THIS MUST ME NUMBER 0
