Can you guess the 10 deadliest animals on the planet?

9.) Cape Buffalo, also commonly known as the water buffalo. When faced with a predator, cape buffalos charge head on. That's 1,500 pounds of beast topped off with two big, sharp horns. You're lucky if there's only one - the real danger comes when a herd of thousands stampedes in your direction.

8.) Polar Bear, not so cuddly anymore! But one might have guessed this since I bet they get pretty hungry and have few chances at prey--making each kill important and a ruthless competitor.

7.) Elephant, Elephants kill more than 500 people a year worldwide. African elephants generally weigh in around 16,000 pounds. Here is a story of a friend of man/domesticated animal--which when mistreated can turn nasty. I have to say, I am rooting for the elephant on this one. Ever hear the story of how Louis Leaky would go after the poachers in africa?

6.) Australian Saltwater Crocodile, I don't know how they determined this would be the worst preditator after the Louisana type...We used to joke in Savannah about how the crocs would come up from the river and eat unwary poodles.

5.) African Lion, (or lioness to be more exact)

4.) Great White Shark, isn't interesting we have at least four animals/insects/fish/amphibians who are from the Cretaeous on this list?

3.) Australian Box Jellyfish,Also known as the sea wasp, this salad-bowl sized jellyfish can have up to 60 tentacles each 15 feet long. Each tentacle has 5,000 stinging cells and enough toxin to kill 60 humans.

2.) Asian Cobra, While the Asian Cobra doesn't hold the title of most venomous snake, it does the most with what it has. Of the 50,000 deaths by snakebite a year, Asian Cobras are responsible for the largest chunk.

1.) Mosquito, Sort of an unassuming predator, no? But some mosquitoes carry and transfer malaria causing parasites. As a result, these little pests are responsible for the deaths of more than two million people a year.
