I thought it would be fun to share a top ten deadliest creature list. So if you have an elephant in your back yard, you’ll want to call in the professionals.
10 - Poison Dart Frog – Kissing one of these won’t get you a prince. One frog has enough toxin to kill 10 people.
9 - Cape Buffalo – The two sharp horns should scare you enough, but these beasts run in herds.
8 - Polar Bear – Fluffy, white, cuddly and look so docile. But you’ll be safer with a stuffed animal.
7 – Elephant – When I think of Indiana Jones riding elephants through the jungle, I think adventure. But elephants kill more than 500 people a year.
6 - Australian Saltwater Crocodile – Drowned and dismembered, yeah I think that is enough motivation to stay away from an alligators neighborhood.
5 - African Lion – This magnificent animal is considered a near perfect hunter. I think there is a story to write about a lion shifter. Precision hunter, wild and savage. I know those are qualities we love in a hero.
4 - Great White Shark – With 3000 teeth and can smell blood in the water, you’d be better to take your chances with a vampire.
3 - Australian Box Jellyfish – This jellyfish has enough toxin to kill 60 humans.
2 - Asian Cobra – The Asian Cobra isn’t the most venomous, but of all snakebites each year, it is responsible for the most deaths.
And the deadliest creature…watch out! It’s the…
1 – Mosquito – The mosquito kills more than 2 million people a year.
