8 MOST DANGEROUS CREATURES OF THE WILD 1-4

If you ever venture out of the safety created by humans, which we call “the city” – here is a list of dangerous animals one needs to watch out for. While most will not attack unless provoked, it is important to know which ones to avoid if ever spotted. Some can strike you when you least expect, while others will definitely not hesitate to take your life.

#1 Box Jellyfish

Despite their impeccable beauty at aquariums, the Box Jellyfish are a dangerous breed. With a number of subspecies, the Sea Wasp Box Jellyfish is the most lethal of all. This shapeless, luminous creature may look mesmerizing, but it is the most poisonous animal in this world. They are deadly to whoever falls victim to its touch, inflicting inescapable pain and death.

#2 Cone Snail

Who would have that a snail would make it to a dangerous animal list? A note to all who visit or dwell in the ocean – beware of the cone snail. It may look just like other snails found on sandy beaches, but it is highly venomous. It only takes one drop of its poison to put 20 human adults to eternal sleep. If the Cone Snail ever stings you, prepare to meet with death within the matter of minutes.

#3 Black Mamba

Although it is not the scariest looking snake with its thin body and a small head, the Black Mamba is more dangerous than the notorious Hooded Cobra. With quick speed and agility, it chases down its prey and strike with fearsome accuracy and lethal venom. In fact, it is known to strike repeatedly at its victim until the prey is dead. It is also aggressive – and would hunt without being provoked.

#4 Cape Buffalo

Oh give me a home, where the buffalos roam – we have to say that this pastoral song is a little misleading, especially when you learn of the Cape buffalo’s dangerous nature. Being naturally aggressive, it will charge and attack victims without reason. Weighing over 2000 pounds and blessed with high speeds of 40 miles per hour, it is known to take on hunters with guns, moving cars and other dangerous predators like the Lion. Thankfully, most are only found in the wild grasslands of Africa, away from peaceful homes.
