Revealed: Top 10 Deadliest Animals in the World

Revealed: Top 10 Deadliest Animals in the World

It is supposedly the human world but animals in their numbers both friendly and deadly have claimed our planet to themselves. We come across them in hundreds and thousands daily, even when we don’t leave our homes to their habitats in the wild. From the simplest crawling insect to the wildest mammals of the wild, it is impossible to say exactly how many of them exist hence the popular statistical estimates used in their numerical representation. While we can easily encounter some of these animals and conceive no fears in us, there are some of them that regardless of their size or structure, they are really thorns on the flesh of every human. We have therefore compiled the list of the top ten of these animals we consider deadliest to human existence.


It might interest you to know that tapeworm has been identified with the death of at least 700 people in the world annually as little as it could be. 
  • This might seem a shock but equally an eye-opener to avoid their attacks in the best possible ways not to fall victim. 
According to biology, it is a specie of the class Cestoda (parasitic flatworm) of the phylum Platyhelminthes. Tapeworm in their number are responsible for the Cysticerosis infection which has been associated with at least 700 deaths in the world annually.



If you love reptiles, now you have to be very careful with one. The crocodile is not just one of the most dangerous animals on earth but a really powerful killing machine. 
The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Kingdom have reported that this animal is responsible for the killing of at least 1000 Africans annually. 
If it can kill Africans, no one is insulated against its death threat. Now you have to be extra careful passing through the waters. 


3- Roundworm

Much like tapeworm, roundworm is as deadly and even more dangerous. The nematode causes an infection known as Ascariasis which has been estimated to kill 4500 people annually.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says it’s a parasite on the human small intestine, and that it causes diseases in children more than adults. Now we need more watch against nematodes and their reproductive eggs in our foods and drinks. 


4-Tse-tse fly

Are you not surprised that the small animals are wreaking more havocs than the bigger ones in their deadly mission? I am too! Tse-tse fly is another small animal that is parasitic and deadly to both animals and man.
 It is a large biting fly which is original to Africa and responsible for the sleeping sickness, Trypanosomiasis. Symptoms of infections include joint pains, headache, fever, itches and in worse cases, neurological problems.

Although with many preventive measures, the number of deaths they cause annually have been decreasing but they still manage to cause as much as 10,000 human deaths annually.


5-Assassin bugs.

The name tells you all you have to know and its mission in existence. Maybe, to wipe out human race. Lol! The insect (a Reduviidae) belongs to the class Hemiptera where almost all of them are terrestrial predators.

The animal which s alternatively called the kissing bug carries Chagas disease which reportedly kills up to 12,000 people annually. It majorly bites people on the face.


 6-Freshwater snails.

Maybe a surprise to you as much as I that snail which is mostly considered harmless could be so deadly. Yes it is! The gastropod molluscs cause a whopping 20,000 plus human death annually. It carries a parasitic worm which inflict people with schistosomiasis. 

The infection have symptoms ranging from abdominal pains to blood stool and blood in urine depending on affected body area. Although millions of people can easily contact the diseases through snail consumption but WHO estimates fatality of between 20,000 and 200,000 t be attributed to it. 



The first mammal to have its way into the list. Friendly pet dogs are but can be really deadly too. The truth is that no matter how friendly, animals would always have their wild/natural moments. 

Maybe why dog is included in this set. Dogs infected with rabies are one of the deadliest animals in the world because of their closeness to human. According to WHO, not less than 35,000 people die annually of rabies, 99 percent of which are caused by dog.



Not so many human love snakes anyway, but we just might be having a reason to stay off them even more. Snakes are the most poisonous creatures on earth with diverse deadly types such as Black Mamba, King Cobra, and so on.

The bites of King Cobra could kill any creature in less than a minute. Snakes have been reported to kill more than 100,000 people annually.



Shocked?! Don’t be. Humans are classified as higher animals and we are threats to our own world too. From suicide to homicides, genocides, slavery and all sort of artificial killings from terrorism, humans can be deadly too. 
In fact, some ferocious human have been discovered of recent. 
Above all, the United Nations office on Drugs and Crime have released that 437,000 homicides took place in 2012, making us the deadliest mammal and the second deadliest animals



Here we go with the deadliest animal the planet who has owned the crown for decades and still live closely to kill human in his planet. Mosquitoes don’t only suck human blood, they transmit viruses from person to person, and are reportedly responsible for most animal-related deaths. Malaria, a disease caused by infections of the female anopheles mosquito itself claims more than half of mosquito related fatalities.

Although consistently in a decline through increasing preventive measures by WHO and other concerned institutions, mosquitoes still manage to cause not less than 750,000 deaths annually. Not just malaria, mosquitoes also cause diseases as Denger fever, a condition that has become a leading cause of hospitalization and death among children of Asian and Latin-American counties.
