There are plenty of snakes on this list, even though not every breed is a dangerous animal. The Inland Taipan is definitely a dangerous animal, however, and if you see one you should avoid it. It’s one of many varieties of venomous snakes, and it’s also one of the most lethal. They’re found in central eastern Australia and are also known as the “fierce snake,” which tells you just how much they’ll like you getting close.
To nobody’s surprise, Australia does indeed have one of the most dangerous varieties of snake – it’s even said to have the most toxic venom of any snake by far since the median lethal dose is so low. Even worse, it seems this snake is specially adapted to kill warm-blooded species. You know. Like humans. Great!
These animals will eat anything in sight that has meat on it. They don’t usually kill humans, but this is probably because they live far out of reach. These mammals live within the Arctic Circle and spend many months of the year on sea ice, hunting seals.
They may seem cute on TV, but don’t let their looks fool you; these creatures will tear you apart. They weigh around 350-700 kg and can cover many miles on foot and run on land thanks to their large limbs and feet.
Poison Dart Frogs
Living in the tropical, humid regions of South and Central America, these poisonous frogs can kill 10 people with their poison. They get their poison from their diet of ants, termites, and mites. Small, but deadly, these frogs can be as small as 1.5 cm in adult length and weigh on average a slight 1 oz.
Why are they called Poison Dart frogs? Indigenous tribes used their poison to make poisonous arrows when hunting for food. While their bright colors are stunning, they are a sign of the toxicity of the species and a way to warn potential predators to stay away.
These dinosaur-esque creatures are some of the classic dangerous animals in the wild, such as the American South, but how dangerous are they, really? Very. They are always a worry if you’re in that area of the world, and they are a constant threat not only to people but other animals such as pets. They don’t kill as many humans as you might think, but they still tally up a couple of deaths a year.
There are about seven unprovoked alligator attacks per year in Florida. Make sure not to feed any of these creatures, as they will start to associate humans with food. That’s specifically something to avoid because they will become less shy and more hungry around humans – definitely a bad combination. Unfortunately, it takes a lot more than a fly swatter to keep them away.
How could these little feathered friends be so dangerous? They’re exceptionally territorial, especially when they have goslings running around. Anybody who has crossed paths with one of these pests will tell you that they will stretch their wings to make them look bigger, and even emit a hissing sound. They’ve been known to chase people who have gotten too close, and they will absolutely attack if they think they’re in danger, using their beaks to stab or even break bones.
Thankfully, these feathered rodents have also come to understand that discretion is sometimes the better part of valor, and will just back off if something is getting too close. Still, if you’re getting too close to a nest, or you’re gunned by the geese, you should play it safe. Also, yell at them. They deserve it.
