Top 10 Deadliest Animals on the Planet

A quick list of the top 10 most deadly animals on the planet.

10. Poison Dart Frog

This small seemingly harmless amphibian is only the size of a pint, yet the pores on their backs have enough neurotoxin in them to kill 10 humans, if you happen to be a princess, please refrain from kissing these deadly creatures.

9. Cape Buffalo

These 1,500 pound beast is one fierce animal, razor sharp horns adorn their head along with a skull that can withstand forces no mere human could, but why put this at number 9? Answer: They live in herds, up to thousands. Now there is nothing that would scare me more than 1,500,000 pounds of combined weight aimlessly charging in my direction.

8. Polar Bear

At your local zoo these things might look cute and cuddly, but if they were out of captivity in the wild, their diet would consist of elephant seals, and elephant aren’t the small little cuddly seals that come to mind, the male elephant seals can reach up to an astounding 21 feet and weigh up to 7,000 pounds! Get in the way of a mother Polar Bear trying to protect her youth, and this bear could rip your head clean off with a single swipe, pounce on you and break every bone in your body before you had time to say “Eureka”.

7. Elephant

They are normally seen as friendly giants, but these beasts kill more than 500 people a year (worldwide). A male African Elephant’s average weight is about 16,000 pounds, and will crush you in a fraction of a second. Not only their weight is something that should be watched out for, they have sharp tusks that could easily pierce the side of a car door not to mention, human flesh.

6. Australian Crocodile (Saltwater)

These reptilian can lie still in the water for hours waiting for prey. Then when the time is right they rocket out of the water at an amazing 30-40 mph and latch on to their prey, often dragging them down in the water while rolling over. Now rolling over? What? This technique used by crocs allows them to latch on to say a limb, then using leverage and their body weight to rip off that limb completely not only damaging the prey severely but also cancelling out any means of escape. After all, trying swimming away from a croc when you only have one leg!

    great white should not be on this list … as well there are much more powerful killing creatures that are more feared and result in more deaths per year that arent listed :(

    @ Maverick. I agree with you about the fact that there are hundreds of more deadly animals that kill more. I had the dilemma of trying to decide whether to base the list on number of deaths or how deadly the animal itself is (the attitude towards humans, the ferocity of the animal, the attributes it has that can be deadly, the fear factor of the animal ETC.) I hope to make another list soon.

    the box jellyfish should be number 1 because they are the most venomous and predatorial, all the mosquito does is suck your blood and it sometimes gives you a disease, it is not the mosquito that kills you, it is the malaria. And the cobra usually only attacks people if they piss it off
