These Are The Top 10 Most Dangerous Animals In The World

There are some animals out there in the great big wide wonderful world that are truly beautiful to look at and yet… there are some, that will just as soon take your head off.  If you listen to the average tree-hugger, even those dangerous animals out there have more “rights” than human beings do, why… because…”they were here on the planet before humans”. Well, in the video below, we will present 10 of the most dangerous animals in the world.

Watch the video as we count down ten animals you should avoid at all costs. Or, to put it another way: ten animals that will straight- up freakin’ kill you if you get too close, or piss them off.

Here is a list of those animal mentioned in the video:

#10. Deathstalker Scorpion: The deathstalker is one of the most dangerous species of scorpions. Its venom is a powerful mixture of neurotoxins, with a low lethal dose.[ While a sting from this scorpion is extraordinarily painful, it normally would not kill a healthy adult human. However, young children, the elderly, or infirm (such as those with a heart condition and those who are allergic) are at much greater risk.
 
#9. Saltwater Crocodile: The saltwater crocodile, also known as the estuarine crocodile, Indo-Pacific crocodile, marine crocodile, sea crocodile or informally as saltie, is the largest of all living reptiles, as well as the largest riparian predator in the world.
 
#8. African Elephant: African elephants are the largest land animals on Earth. They are slightly larger than their Asian cousins and can be identified by their larger ears that look somewhat like the continent of Africa.
 
#7. Hippopotamus: The hippopotamus is among the most dangerous animals in the world as it is highly aggressive and unpredictable. They are threatened by habitat loss and poaching for their meat and ivory canine teeth.
 
#6. Cape Buffalo:  Also known as Black Death, the Cape Buffalo can be extremely dangerous, and is said to have killed more big game hunters than any other animal in Africa. An impressive creature, males can reach heights of 6ft and weigh a hefty 1, 750 lbs.
 
#5. Great White Shark: The White Shark, more commonly referred to as the “Great White,” has been reported to be involved in more attacks on humans than any other shark.
 
#4. African Lion: The first and most obvious reason the African lion is dangerous to human beings is hunger. Without horns or fangs, humans also look like easier targets to older or sick lions. In certain instances, females might perceive humans as a threat to their cubs. If the animal is injured, it also might feel threatened by the presence of a human.
 
#3. The Box Jellyfish: Box jellyfish (class Cubozoa) 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. Stings from these and a few other species in the class are extremely painful and can be fatal to humans.
 
#2. Black Mamba: Encroachment on the black mamba’s territory is not only putting pressure on the species but contributes to more potentially dangerous human contact with these snakes. Black mambas use their incredible speed to escape threats, not to hunt prey. The black mamba is Africa’s largest venomous snake.
 
#1. Mosquito: When considering “the most dangerous animal in the world,” there are several obvious candidates, like the Great White Shark or the Hippopotomus? But, this title rests with an animal you’d least expect – the mosquito. Mosquitoes are infamous. They have quite a reputation for ruining barbecues and birthday parties. But the most dangerous in the world? What is it that makes them so deadly? Though tiny, these insects cause more deaths than any other animal on the planet. Not necessarily the mosquito itself, but the number of serious diseases it could carry.
