10. Eastern Brown Snake
While Australia holds the reputation for holding some of the most venomous snakes in the world (over 50 species at that), more than 75% of all snakebites in the country are delivered by this aggressive and highly venomous snake. It venom can cause paralysis within minutes, leading to death.

9. Alligator Snapping Turtle
The largest freshwater turtle, it is considered to be the most dangerous among freshwater turtles, with a thick shell, heavy head and a beak that is capable of breaking a piece of wood in a second (what if it is your hand?). It uses camouflage to hide in the wild.


8. African Puff Adder
This is a venomous specie of snake that is one of the main reasons behind snake-bite deaths in Africa. It resorts to camouflage to protect itself, but if disturbed, it would hiss loudly and make an attack posture. It can strike suddenly, penetrating its long fangs deep into their target.
7. Black Mamba
Just the name itself would make a frightening expression among African people. It is the longest venomous snake in the country that has a deadly combination of venom, speed and unpredictable behavior. It prefers to avoid confrontation, but if agitated, it will make a deadly strike and even chase humans
6. Gila Monster
This is a very poisonous and fearsome lizard from North America that spends most of its time underground hibernating and is only active during summer. While they are often easily killed by humans out of fear, they can also easily kill a human with one bite, more quickly than other venomous snakes.


5. Taipan
This large, fast-moving and extremely dangerous snake is native to Australia, with a single bite containing enough venom to kill 12,000 guinea pigs. When it injects its venom, it can cause deadly effects, such as tissue and muscle damage, hemorrhaging and paralysis. So, you might want to stay away from this one
4. King Cobra
Many rankers consider this snake as the most venomous in the world, with maximum length that can reach up to almost 19 feet. Found in India and South Asia, it is called “king” as it would prey on almost all snake species in its vicinity. It has also caused deaths in the region.
3. Komodo Dragon
Crowned as the largest lizard on Earth, the Komodo dragon is considered a threat to almost every living thing in its vicinity. It has jaws filled with rows of venomous teeth (not to mention full of deadly bacteria) that can amputate a normal person to pieces. In fact, many humans have fallen victim to this reptile.
2. Saltwater Crocodile
While this large reptile appears to be clumsy and slow on the ground, it is considered to be one of the most ferocious killers on Earth, with strong jaws that can easily chop into pieces its prey, whether it is another animal or human. It is found living across three continents of Africa, Australia and South-East Asia.


1. Anaconda
Human attacks by anacondas are only a few and far between as their habitats do not usually overlap, but they are not unheard of. While these reptiles are not naturally man-eaters, they would generally go after any prey that they can subdue and swallow. There is potential for these animals to prey on people.
