15 Of The Most Dangerous Creatures On Planet Earth.

The Crocodile

For millions of years crocodiles have looked pretty similar to their current form. Because they’ve evolved to become pretty incredible predators, they don’t really have the need to adapt further. They’re pretty fast swimmers, and have built-in camouflage, making it so they can ambush their prey. They’re known to have the strongest bite in the animal kingdom, and live in fresh, and saltwater. This next animal is much smaller than a crocodile, but just as deadly.

Bullet Ant

This small creature’s name is pretty fitting. People say the pain from this insect’s venom is so powerful, it feels like you’re being shot. The venom contains a toxin that targets the central nervous system, which causes paralysis that is strong enough to take down a full grown man. Bullet ants are used in some of the warrior initiation rituals of the tribes of the South American rainforest.

Poisonous Dart Frog

Even though this bright yellow amphibian looks cute and kid-friendly, it is certainly not. This dangerous frog is about the size of a paperclip, but holds enough poison to kill ten men. The Golden Poison Dart Frog is considered the most poisonous animal in existence. Luckily, they can only be found in the Pacific Coast of Columbia. This next animal sure makes a cute stuffed animal, but in real life, they wouldn’t hesitate to take a bite out of you.

Polar Bear

Out of all of the bear species, polar bears are the most carnivorous, and they shouldn’t be messed with. Although the live in the Arctic, a very remote area, if someone were to run into one, they would be in a lot of trouble. They prefer the fatty flesh of seals, but are known to attack humans if they’re hungry enough. If you find yourself traveling to their Indonesian islands, you’ll be able to say you saw a dragon, just like the next one on our list.

Komodo Dragon

The komodo dragon is the largest species of monitor lizard in the entire world. It’s bite can cause hemorrhaging, low blood pressure, hypothermia, and muscle paralysis. Whether it’s caused by bacteria or certain venomous proteins in the dragons saliva, scientists can’t be certain why it happens. Regardless of why, its bite leads to certain death for its prey either way.
