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.

#19 Freshwater Snails – kill 10,000 per year

How could a snail cause death, you may ask? After all, aren’t they even slower than turtles? Well, these creatures infect water with a parasitic disease known as Bilharzia.

If you happen to swim in waters with freshwater snails, you could easily become infected with this disease and suffer from blood in the urine, diarrhea, abdominal pain, liver or kidney damage, bladder cancer and eventually, death. So, what is the moral of the story?   Just avoid rivers or lakes where you think freshwater snails are living!
