30 Deadliest Creatures

May 1, 2018

Recent arguments have begun to transpire as to whether Australia truly is the pinnacle danger continent of the world, or if it is just a guise of deception created by these creatures for travel to even more deadly locales. Even so, the 30 creatures in this list are the most deadly out of every continent in the world, and most of their locations will be quite chilling to those who will be most surprised to discover that they may not be as safe as they think. Will Australia attain the most points and remain the reigning danger champion, or will your continent take first prize?

30. Great White Shark

Location: North and South America, South Africa, Australia and Madagascar, and parts of Asia. 

As the ocean’s widely known apex predator, great whites can jump up to ten feet above the water surface in a technique known as breaching. In addition, spy hopping is a term also used to describe the way the sharks come to the surface and “spy” on prey by looking over the water. Strangely enough, the great white shark’s tongue is absolutely worthless, as it serves no particular purpose to the shark. Scientists are curious of this phenomenon because of the fact that they are 400 million years old, and are perfect evolutionary creatures in every way except this, especially in the mouth department.

29. Champawat Tiger

Location: Asia

The infamous Champawat Tigress is a female Bengal tiger who assumedly killed over two hundred people in Nepal, and only stopped killing people in the country when, having multiple hunters failed to kill her, the Nepalese army was mobilized for the sole reason of hunting this one tiger. And even they failed to kill her, but they did manage to frighten her out of Nepal and into India. There, she killed more than two hundred people until she was finally brought to justice.

28. Gray Wolves

Location: North America, Asia, and Europe

The largest of the dog family, wolves historically populated much of Eurasia, North Africa and North America. The gray wolf inhabits a immensely reduced fragment of its former range due to widespread destruction of its territory. Recently endangered, they rarely attack people in North America or Europe, however they do run down the occasional agricultural worker in Asia because the two come into contact much more often. Looks like Asia is in the lead with 3 points!
