You might love animals, you might be afraid of them, but there are a few you don’t want to mess with, no matter how brave you’re feeling! You can be seriously injured, or the attack could be fatal!

We all know why the fences exist at the zoo; too many times, we’ve seen interactions with animals turn fatal, all because someone couldn’t stick to the rules. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of luck, and you find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Sometimes the deadliest animal even looks harmless, so you’ve got to keep your eyes peeled. If you’re ever stranded in the wild or just got mixed up in a bad situation, pray that it’s not with one of these guys!

1. The Cape Buffalo

If their size isn’t intimidating enough to scare you, their determination should be. These buffalo reside in sub-Saharan Africa and can grow up to 6ft tall, weigh 2000 pounds, and run at speeds of 35 miles per hour.

They are determined to get revenge if they’re in danger, and you better not go near their calf. They kill hunters, will fight till their dying breath, and will mess up your car; that’s why they’ve earned their notorious name as the Black Death!

2. Golden Poison Frog

Maybe you want to channel your inner Princess Tiana and go on an adventure through New Orleans. But the golden poison frog is probably one frog you don’t want to kiss because it’s got a poisonous toxin under its skin!

The poison is to deter predators from taking a bite and has been used by the Indigenous people of Columbia to poison their darts when hunting! This small guy has enough venom to kill at least ten adults!

If Moto-Moto is coming at you, pray, because there’s a good chance he wants to eat you. Hippos are not those big loving herbivores that we’ve come to know them as; they’re actually omnivores and have been known to kill wild deer and even humans!

They have a powerful bite force; I mean, we’ve seen the gender reveal watermelons; they crush them without even trying! They also run at 29mph, and with their weight, they can crush you.

4. Black Mamba

Black mambas can move really fast at 12mph, and venom from a single bite can kill ten adults! They usually don’t attack humans unless they feel threatened, and they’ll bite repeatedly!

They’re usually found in South-East Africa on rocky terrain, but with a scarcity of food, they find their way into homes, putting small household pets at risk. It might be scary to see a 14ft mamba trying to eat your poop, baby Fluffy!

5. Mosquitoes

No, it’s not a joke; mosquitoes are extremely dangerous. They can carry diseases like the Zika Virus, dengue fever, and even Japanese encephalitis, which are transmitted when they bite you.

You might be panicking because summer is here, and they’re everywhere! Fear not; you can find mosquito repelling sprays, candles, and oils everywhere; just be careful using diffusers when you have pets around your house!
