The Deadliest Animals on Earth – Ranked

Do you know which animals are the deadliest to humans? You might be surprised! Some of them may lurk in your own backyard. Check-out this countdown of the most deadly creatures on the planet.

#13 Hippos – kill 600 people per year

The hippo may be a very large animal and definitely not very muscular-looking at all but it does kill a whopping 600 people per year in Africa alone, making it the largest land mammal on earth!

Despite what they look like, they are very aggressive, can be angered quickly and have extremely sharp teeth so if you are caught by one, you have literally had your day! In addition, weighing close to 2,5 tons, if an angry hippo sits on you, it will quickly crush you to death. Again, rather keep your distance and look at one from afar!
