More dangerous even than the Black Widow, these spiders are lethal to children and the elderly. They are small spiders, ranging from 6 to 20 millimeters, and found across various states in the U.S.
While the bite is not felt right away and may not be painful, the symptoms can be serious and require medical attention. They like to hide in shoes and gloves, so always check before putting them on.
They are known to kill humans, and during wartime and disease outbreaks, their hunting increases. While they are sometimes depicted in movies as being cowardly (we are looking at you Lion King), they actually ward off larger predators from their kills.
Their powerful jaws and sharp teeth can not only cut through their prey's skin but also actually break bones. They are mostly nocturnal. In Somalia, they love Hyena meat and use it for food and medical purposes.
Sri Lankan Leopard
Found in regions of Asia and Africa, the Sri Lankan Leopard is one of the “five big cats.” They hunt from trees, using their extremely powerful jaws, which are some of the most powerful in the animal kingdom.
They hunt silently, stalking their prey and waiting until they are within a pouncing distance to pursue their victim. They execute the killing with a single bite to the throat. If you find yourself roaming the jungle and you hear a roar, you better take cover.
While mostly peaceful, the world’s largest animal is naturally bound to be dangerous. They sometimes display bouts of rage and can get aggressive, trampling other animals and destroying villages in their way. They are prevalent in Sub-Saharan Africa in dense forests, woodlands, and deserts.
They are some of the most intelligent species and display a variety of behaviors and emotional capabilities such as grief, learning, play, humor, altruism, compassion, and self-awareness.
Hunters say that this animal can be even harder to catch than wild bears. With a weight of up to 660 Ibs, this aggressive mammal also comes in fourth in the list of most intelligent animals on the planet. Its sharp tusks are to be avoided at all costs. They are also known to be the host of at least 20 different parasitic worm species, with most infections taking place in the summer.
While attacks on humans are rare, they can be serious and result in injury. The boar attacks by charging and pointing its tusks toward its victim, usually injuring their thigh. After the first attack, they step back to look if the victim is still moving. If so, they keep attacking until the victim is immobile.
