Five of the most dangerous animal species on our planet

We often judge the danger of an animal that lives far from our home by reading books and memorable cartoons in childhood.

For example, in India there are evil cobras, which were fought by the brave mongoose Rikki-Tikki-Tavi.

And there are giant octopuses in the ocean, like the one that attacked captain Nemo’s submarine (by the way, octopuses, or octopuses, are completely safe for humans).

This information, of course, is not enough to have even a General idea about the dangerous fauna of the world, so we publish here information about the five most dangerous species of animals on the planet.

1. POISONOUS FROGS

Buying from local residents somewhere in Madagascar bright beautiful frogs for your aquarium or terrarium, you can inadvertently buy a real “serial killer”.

Some species of frogs that live in tropical latitudes produce a very strong poison in the back glands. For example, one adult South African “Golden frog” can accumulate enough poison to kill 10 people.

2. GREAT WHITE SHARK

There are several species of sharks that are dangerous to humans, but only the great white shark was awarded the dubious honor of being called a “man-eating shark”. This species lives in almost all warm waters of The world ocean, and is found in the Japanese and Mediterranean seas. Sometimes it reaches a length of 7-8 meters, there is information about 12-meter sharks.

The great white shark is considered to be the most powerful, ferocious and bloodthirsty in the entire shark family. Huge jaws (they even filmed the famous horror movie of the same name) with three thousand teeth do not give the victim any chance of salvation. In 2004, cases of great white shark attacks on swimming people were first reported on the far Eastern coast of Russia.

3. A POISONOUS SNAKE IS AN ASIAN COBRA

The one from Kipling’s fairy tale. There are many species of snakes that have more venom than the Asian Cobra, but it is the most dangerous. As a rule, the first Cobra does not attack a person, this is possible if the snake is disturbed. However, it is not difficult to disturb the Cobra – it lives on the ground, among the lush tropical vegetation, and it is very difficult to see it because of the “patronizing” color. In addition, the Cobra does not crawl away when a person approaches, and if it guards its egg-laying, it becomes especially aggressive.

Of the 50,000 people who die every year around the world from venomous snake bites, most are victims of the Asian Cobra, a beautiful snake with a “hood”.

4. CROCODILES

The only predators on Earth for which a person is not a random victim, but the object of hunting – crocodiles. Various species of these large reptiles live in tropical reservoirs on almost all continents.

In length, an adult crocodile can reach seven meters and weigh about a ton. And at the same time behaves in such a way that it is almost impossible to notice it in the water. Taking advantage of this, the crocodile can wait for hours for prey, then a lightning throw follows, and the victim-an antelope, a monkey, a man-is dragged to the depth, where a leisurely meal begins. Sometimes large crocodiles pursue their victims on land.

It is estimated that over the past two decades, crocodiles have eaten at least 20 people.

5. MOSQUITOES

Small tropical insects, whose obvious consequences for humans are only itching and reddening of the skin, are the most dangerous killers on Earth. Their victims on the planet are more than two million people every year. Mosquitoes are carriers of malaria and some other dangerous diseases. Most of all, people living in tropical areas of Africa suffer from mosquito-borne infections.
