8 MOST POWERFUL PREDATORS 5-8

Unlike our house pet friends, animals in the wild are not just about being adorable. In fact, many are strongly built to be natural predators. Continuing our list of the top ten most powerful wild animals, here we have an intriguing range of creatures that hunt in a variety of places.

#5 Polar Bears
Big, fluffy and white with a cute face, Polar Bears are definitely not an animal you want to try befriend. Some say that they evolved from brown bears when they once travelled north to hunt for food. Like their tan colored counterparts, they are a natural when it comes to hunting prey. What makes them different is their large size and ability to camouflage – with that beautiful white fur, they blend right in on snowy plains for surprise attacks.

#6 Saltwater Crocodile

Crocodiles are made to look cunning and sly in the media – and this portrayal is not too far off when you judge how real crocodiles behave. Lurking and hiding in muddy waters, the Saltwater Crocodile waits for its prey to get close before chomping it down with its enormous jaws. They are characterized with the strongest bite of all animals. Another testimonial to their prowess is that they are ancient animals, and have survived millions and millions of years on earth. Not to mention that Saltwater Crocodiles are also the largest reptiles in the world.

#7 Black Mamba
Those who suffer from ophidiophobia will shudder at the mention of Black Mambas – the mighty African snake. These snakes are jet black, large in size and fatally venomous. Although scientists have characterized them as shy and reserved animals, Black Mambas are dangerously aggressive when provoked. Once an attack is initiated, it would continuous strike its opponent until life is snuffed out of its prey. It is not a wonder that their rate of success in killing is high.

#8 Grey Wolf

Although this predator is relatively smaller in size than the ones listed above, one should not take its killing abilities lightly. With unbeatable stamina, the Grey Wolf is clever and extremely smart. Like lions and tigers, they are also pack animals, taking down their opponents with well-coordinated play. They are definitely ones to watch out for if you venture into the wild.
