Top 10 Most Dangerous Animals in the World

1. Mosquito

Surprising, isn’t it? Yes, this small blood-sucking insect kills hundreds of millions of people each year. They are responsible for the spread of malaria and dengue hemorrhagic fever. While they are common in tropical areas, they are still found in low temperate countries such as United Kingdom, Japan, and other parts of Europe.

Now that you already read our top ten most dangerous animals in the world, you might want to rethink how you define danger. You might not agree with some of the animals listed here. But that is normal since there are other animals considered to be dangerous that are not included here such as the box jellyfish, African lion, poison dart frog, hippopotamus, Brazilian wondering spider, Komodo dragon, and many others. Just remember to be careful and respect the power within each animal to be safe.


  1. You’re an idiot if you think you can justify great white sharks being the second most dangerous animal on earth. About six people every year die from shark attacks. More people die just walking down the street while drunk in any given month. Seriously, it’s idiots like you who perpetuate these asinine fears that make animals like great whites become extinct.

  2. The most retarded list I’ve ever seen in my life. How can you have a fly that kills hundreds of thousands eight but you have sharks second? 30 people die from shark attacks a year. Hippopotami are deadlier than sharks.

    1. Because an animal doesn’t kill the largest amount of humans, does not mean it’s not more dangerous than one that kills more.

      So if sharks kill 30 people a year, would I be more dangerous than all sharks put together if I killed 31 in a year? Would I be more dangerous than all sharks put together if I killed none at all?
      The shark is feared for the very reason that it is dangerous. We humans cannot move very fast in water, and are not able to properly protect ourselves. The great white shark can smell your blood from miles away, it swims so much faster than us, and it has 3 rows of large teeth that will tear your body apart.

      Also, another thing is that not all Tsetse flies transit sleeping sickness, and there’s a cure for it. As it is now, there’s no cure for a dead body with it’s body torn in half and empty of blood.

      I would agree that the list is not perfect though, neither order or species. I would certainly have included the box jellyfish, simply for it’s potent venom and it’s transparent blue color blending into the ocean.

      There is not one definite list of most dangerous animals, it all depends on your criteria.

  3. The most dangerous animal on planet earth, without a doubt, is homo sapiens.Not only do we kill each other, we are responsible for mass killings, and even complete extinction of many other species. The idea that you would include the great white in this list because it is “feared” is laughable. Man kills thousands of great whites for every one that actually kills a human.

  4. Great White the second most dangerous animal in the world is the biggest bullshit I ever heard.

  5. It’s kind of hard to measure this. Do you measure what animals are the most dangerous by the average close encounter, the average attack, or the whole species? If the first, they’d all be apex predators. If the second, they’d all be small venomous marine animals. If the third, they would all be disease-carrying insects.
