Most Dangerous Species on the Planet

The deadly animals on this list are ones that even animal lovers will want to avoid at all costs. Here is a list of some of the most dangerous animals in the world.

Poison Dart Frogs

Living in the tropical, humid regions of South and Central America, these poisonous frogs can kill 10 people with their poison. They get their poison from their diet of ants, termites, and mites. Small, but deadly, these frogs can be as small as 1.5 cm in adult length and weigh on average a slight 1 oz.

Why are they called Poison Dart frogs? Indigenous tribes used their poison to make poison arrows when hunting for food. While their bright colors are stunning, they are a sign of the toxicity of the species and a way to warn potential predators to stay away.

Polar Bear

These animals will eat anything in sight that has meat on it. They don’t usually kill humans, but this is probably because they live far out of reach. These marine mammals live within the Arctic Circle and spend many months of the year on sea ice, hunting seals.

They may seem cute on T.V., but don’t let their looks fool you; these creatures will tear you apart. They weigh around 350-700 kg and can cover many miles on foot and run on land thanks to their large limbs and feet.
