10. The Bear

Bear
Bear danger is the risk encountered by humans and their pets or livestock when interacting with bears.

Although most bears are alpha predators in their own habitat, most do not, under normal circumstances, hunt and feed on humans. Polar bears are most likely to view humans as prey because their environment is so nutrient poor. Most bear attacks occur when the animal is defending itself against anything they perceive as a threat to themselves or their territory. For instance, bear sows can become extremely aggressive if they feel their cubs are threatened. Any solitary bear is also likely to become agitated if surprised or cornered, especially while eating.[1] Some species are more aggressive than others; sloth bears, Asiatic black bears, and brown bears are more likely to injure people than other species, and the American black bear is comparatively timid.

9. The Shark

Shark
Shark are dangerous because they are probably the most efficient predators on earth. Besides, the human capabilities on water are very limited compared with the abilities of sharks in their natural habitat. Sharks are aggressive and the smallest provocation will lead to an attack.

Jellyfish
Another in the “most dangerous animals” series, the Jellyfish fits nicely in this category.
Jellyfish are not usually deadly to humans although some kinds are, however they do produce a sting that is excruciatingly painful.

7. The Hippopotamus

Heppo
If there is one thing you hear when you go to Africa it’s: “Never get between a hippo and the water!” An angry or threatened hippo is a pretty intimidating adversary, weighing between 1.5 and 3 tons and able to run at up to 30 mph – that’s three times faster than most of us). If hippos are threatened on land, they’ll run for water… and believe me you don’t want to be in the way!  It’s no wonder that the most deaths by wild animals in Africa are caused by hippos.

6. The Elephant

Elephants are the largest land mammals on earth. They are brown to dark gray and have coarse long hairs sparsely covering their bodies and their very thick skin helps to keep them cool. An elephant trunk serves as another limb.   They are a fusion of the nose and upper lip; to help the elephant use it to gather food and water the trunk contains more than 40,000 muscles. Their large ears are functional in fanning and provide a funneling of sounds for excellent hearing.  Their thick legs support their great weight with seemingly little effort. These massive animals grow up to 14 feet at the shoulder and can weigh between 6,000-15,000 lbs.  Simply having your foot stepped on can cost you dearly.  The weight of an elephant alone makes it dangerous.

The saltie will attack even when unprovoked and is a real danger. Don’t believe you are safe from saltwater crocodiles if you are far from the sea as they have been sighted much further inland away from salt water.

Freshies have narrower snouts and are rarely more than three metres long. Salties are generally larger and with a fuller snout, and hey! watch out for those teeth.

4. Wild Cats
