The Twenty Most Scary Animals

They are the most scary animals. Some are dangerous, some are not but they send shivers down our spines and make us sweat over nothing even when its cold. They are the twenty most feared animals in the world, and the most dangerous, man, is not one of them!

  1. Snakes – Very few people love snakes. Whether poisonous or not, snakes seem to scare the hell out of most people.
  2. Spiders – Most people are scared of spiders. Just like snakes, not all spiders are venomous but this doesn’t matter.
  3. Scorpions – They are famous for their diabolic sting and the pain it leaves making them among the most scaring animals.
  4. Caterpillars – I know they are the larvae of butterflies but some are so dangerous that they lead to death within half an hour.
  5. Mice – I am yet to come across a woman who doesn’t run helter skelter when a mouse runs across the bathroom or kitchen floor, yet its harmless!
  6. Bats – I am not talking about the blood sucking vampire bats but people seem to be scared of what bats look like more than what they can do.
  7. Sharks – Those who live near oceans and seas know what sharks, especially the great white sharks can do to those who cross their paths.
  8. Crocodiles – The sight of their saw like jaws is enough to make many of us micturate.
  9. Lions – Talk of a lion roar and you have everyone’s attention, at least in most parts of the world.
  10. Hippos – Hippos are heavy, hippos can crush, and hippos can tear a man into pieces when hungry. Those who stay near fresh water lakes know this.
  11. Bears – They are ferocious hunters, and we fear them. Grizzly bears are the most feared among bears.
  12. Moles – Does anyone know why moles are feared? Perhaps its because they look like rats.
  13. Centipedes – Some are venomous but the fact that they have so many legs sends some chills down the spine in some people.
  14. Tapeworms – None of us wants a worm that measures up to 12 meters growing up in their intestines.
  15. Wolves – They are cunning hunters and feared too.
  16. Owls – They are famous for their bad omen rather than bites or anything else that could be dangerous.
  17. Mosquitoes – If you don’t fear them, they have never bitten you.
  18. Piranha – Mythical or not, these fish are scary. The fact that they can feed on human flesh scares the hell out of many people.
  19. Bees – I am yet to come across a man or woman who isn’t afraid of these tiny insects yet one sting sends them to their death.
  20. Chameleons – They are among the slowest animals on the planet, but they still create shivers and shockwaves in some people, most people.

 Which one do you fear the most?

    What about lizards and frogs?

    Chameleons are the frigging ninjas of reptiles. They are slow and can blend into anything and if they had human brains they can kill us all. Speaking of which, why is Chameleon in Mortal Kombat turn into a frigging monkey?

    Oops by Chameleon I meant reptile but it doesn’t change my point in dealing with lizards. And my sister catches bees in her bare hands which makes me wonder where her brain is…

    I’m terrified of spiders, other insects don’t really scare me, but I am very allergic to bees so I have to be careful not to get stung. Great article ! Very interesting. Thank you for sharing.

    Owls would be scary for their hooting. BUT scorpions are on the top of the list with their venom…


  28. Starpisces Says...

    On February 24, 2011 at 11:41 am

    you are right, these are very scary ones.
    I hate mosquitoes.
    I ever stung by bee on the arm, very painful.
    A bat ever landed on top of my bag, which was on the bed.
    Very scary look, the bat.

    Good list, I understand why most of these animals are scary for many people. Though, never heard anything about the owls before …

    These animals do harm only if interfered. I fear humans the most with all the political and ulterior intentions :)

    The camel spider is one HELL of a terrifying creature… definitely one of the animals I would NOT want to run into in the dark.

    ‘The easiest way I know to answer, is that I think in the presence of any of them that tried to come near my space, I would be afraid of at the time. Bats come down here and brush through our hair. It feels very strange.
