25 Deadliest Animals to Humans

25. Deathstalker

This highly venomous scorpion residing primarily in North Africa and the Middle East is responsible for over 75% of scorpion related deaths every year.

Although healthy adults usually only feel unbearable pain, children that are envenomated suffer fever, coma, convulsions, and paralysis before their lungs fill up and they drown in their own fluids.

24.Africanized Honey Bee

An experiment gone wrong, in 1957 a Brazilian bee keeper who was trying to interbreed European and African honey bees accidently let some of his pets get away. Much more aggressive than their European counterparts, these genetically mixed killer bees have since then spread through out the Americas. They have come to be feared in some regions because of their tendency to swarm relentlessly and aggressively chase their victims for miles.

23. Bulls

Due to farming and riding accidents, 3 people per year die in the US from bulls. In other countries bull riding deaths happen often, especially in Spain.

22. Black Widow and Brown Recluse

In the US, 3 people per year die due to spider bites. Many are young children and they dont receive medical care soon enough to prevent death from occurring. Death is much more common in other countries.

21. Bears

About ten people a year die from bear attacks. They usually try to avoid people, but when an encounter does occur, they can be vicious.

20. Sharks

About 75 shark attacks are reported each year, while 10 of those end up in deaths. Great White Shark and the Bull Sharks are often the attackers.

19. Leopards

Its unclear how many are killed by leopards each year as not many keep records of such. But in India one year, 15 people were indeed killed by the leopard.
