1. The mosquito is responsible for 3 million deaths a year, and is found worldwide. It spreads malaria, Yellow Fever, and West Nile Virus. 2. The Box Jellyfish. 5,568 humans killed each year. Shaped like a cube, this brainless "Sea Wasp" has tentacles several feet long. The sting sends a human into cardiac arrest within minutes. The sting is excruciatingly painful. Only turtles are immune to the venom, and turtles are its only known predator. Vinegar disables the nematocysts which have not yet fired into the prey's bloodstream, though it will not alleviate the horrific agony. 3. The Hippo. Though it lives in Wild Africa and no where else, the Hippo kills 300 humans per year. Tramples and gores humans for sport (hippos are herbivores). The mouthspan of a hippo's gaping yawn is 4 feet. Though much larger than a human, any hippo (30 mph) can outrun Abu Bakar (24 mph), and whenever the urge strikes the hippo, it does charge at you like a maniacal freight train. There is no escape.

Poison Dart Frog. The backs of the poison dart frog ooze a slimy neurotoxin that is meant to keep the predators away. Each frog produces enough of the toxin to kill 10 humans, though in captivity, the frogs do not secrete this poison. The frogs are brilliantly colored and live mainly in Central and South America.

In the USA fatal dog attacks were more common than fatal snake attacks. Wild animals are less likely to kill humans, than the animals we keep around us. Captive cows have killed many people even. Disease and parasites can also be contracted by living around our pets and livestock.
