The number one cause of death by animals throughout Africa, this buffalo is very unpredictable. There’s a reason behind its nicknames, “Widowmaker” and “black death.” They are responsible for the deaths of over 200 people every year. While they are a threat to humans living in regions where they are present, humans, in turn, are a bigger threat to these buffalo.
The Cape buffalo is a member of the big-five game family, due to the danger involved in hunting it. Wounded animals are known to lie in wait for hunters and attack them. Hunters may pay over $10,000 to hunt one. The animals are mostly sought out for their trophy value, while some are hunted for meat.
These wolves have killed more than 7,000 people. Not as friendly as dogs, their bite can be deadly.
They are native to Europe and depend on livestock and garbage as their food source, generally in areas that are highly populated by humans.
These bugs may seem small and harmless but don't let that misleading exterior fool you. They will hurt you and they won't mind one bit. These flies infest and lay eggs inside of humans’ bodies.
The eggs can live and feed off of you for months, sometimes causing infections and death. That doesn't mean you should panic over every fly you come across. Since these guys are common in Belize, if you aren't planning on traveling there, you should be fine.
A truly stunning animal, it has caused the death of many humans throughout history, and for that reason, it has earned the nickname “man-eater.” Its teeth are particularly large, measuring 3 to 3.9 inches — the biggest among all cats.
Despite being the king of the jungle, it has become an endangered animal due to poaching and the loss of habitat in the Indian subcontinent.
