Nature is so much Diverse, every creature has interesting qualities. Some are considered less dangerous and others deadly. But still the most dangerous animal on earth is human. But Humans might not be on top of food chain but still most deadly.

Here is the list of top 10 most dangerous animal in the world

10.Komodo Dragon

Komodo Dragons are not picky eaters. They will eat anything from birds to water buffalos to humans and they have even been known to dig up bodies from shallow graves. They are prodigious hunters and will wait stealthily until their prey approaches after which they will charge forward, rip out its throat, and retreat while it bleeds out.The only reason their human kill count is so low is probably due to limited interaction as well as the fact that they only really need to eat once a month.

9. Tsetse Fly

As small as they may seem, tsetse fly kills around 300,000 people every year. They cause a dreaded disease called African sleeping sickness. A tsetse fly is a large sucking insect that attacks when a person is sleeping.

8. Leopards

When most animals are wounded they run away and hide. Not leopards. When these dangerous creatures are wounded they become even more dangerous. Not only that, but they’re strong. Anyone who has watched the Discovery Channel knows that they like to hide their prey out of reach. Translation: they drag dead antelopes up trees.

7. Poison Dart Frog

These pint-sized frogs aren’t for kissing. Their backs ooze a slimy neurotoxin that is meant to keep predators away. Each frog produces enough of the toxin to kill 10 humans.

6. Blue Ringed Octopus

About the size of a golf ball, don’t let its small stature fool you, it holds enough venom to kill 26 full grown adults and as you may have guessed, there is no antidote. Assuming that your friend ever gets bitten you had better know CPR because you can be sure that within minutes they will be completely paralyzed and unable to breathe. Mother nature, however, shows no mercy and they will maintain their consciousness for the next few hours until the venom is neutralized by their body. This is of course assuming that you, or someone at the hospital, continues artificial respiration.

5. Hippopotamus

Although they are mostly herbivorous, they are also highly aggressive and are widely regarded as one of the most dangerous animals in Africa. They have been known to attack humans without provocation even to the point of destroying entire vehicles.

4. Saltwater Crocodile

The saltwater crocodile is the largest of their kind. An adult can grow up to 21 feet with reports that there are sightings of these crocodiles that are larger than 21 feet. Native to Southeast Asia and Northern Australia, saltwater crocodile can kill people with their deadly death roll. n order to kill its food it make use of a technique called the “death roll” where it relentlessly flips its prey over and over in the water until it drowns and then comes apart.

3. African Elephant

The world’s largest land animal, elephants can be fiercely aggressive and have been known to trample even a rhinoceros or two to death. They seemingly have the capacity to display bouts of rage and have even engaged in activities that have been interpreted as vindictive, razing entire villages in the process.

2. Dinosaur

Very less is known about them. A large part of them were herbivorous. The omnivorous Dinosaur were big in size. The size itself scares the hell out of me. Who would have stood infront of them today ?

1. Mosquito

Moving from one of the largest animals in the world we now come to one of the smallest. As small as it is though, it is also the deadliest. It has been estimated that mosquitos transmit diseases to almost 700 million people annually resulting in 2 to 3 million deaths every year.

  1. Bonus :

0. HUMAN

We evolved from many years. The result of evolution is incredible. Our brain has the ability to create anything and destroying anything in no time. We have learned the art of adaptation. Live in most of the extreme conditions. Even if our brain becomes extinct someday( like our tail) , I believe we would have found a solution by then for an artificial brain which is better than the natural one. 😀 . We anyways have killed many animals ( humans , elephants , tigers , lions , rhino’s and so many of them) for some or the other reasons and we are the sole reason for the extinction of so many animals. Undoubtedly , we are the king of deathly animals. Take a bow .
