In the previous article, I have discussed some dangerous animals which have killed many people in the world. Details of some of them are still remaining which I am going to explain in this article. Those who have not read my previous article can read it by clicking HERE. So now, I will start with the next animal.

Lion

The proper definition of lion written by the worlds most trusted website, Wikipedia is given below:

The lion is one of the big cats in the Felidae family and a member of genus Panthera.

                                                                                                                                                                                    Source: Wikipedia


Lion is known as the king of the jungle. It belongs to the family of a cat. They came to existence on earth nearly about 8 hundred thousand to 1 million years. Their average age is nearly 10 to 14 years and its weight is nearly 250 to 300 kilograms. It also becomes cannibal when it gets old, weak or injured.

250 people are killed by these ferocious animals annually.

African Wild Ox
 

It is mostly found in South-East of Africa. On its head, there are two horns which are in a curled form. These curled horns make it more frightening. It is counted in the most dangerous animals of the world. It does not have any relation with those buffaloes which people pet in their homes for the sack of milk and butter. Of all the ferocious animals, only lions and crocodiles have the power to hunt it. But sometimes, these two ferocious animals cannot handle them and these wild oxen hit them very hard. They live in the form of a herd. They have a height of nearly 3.5 feet to 5.5 feet. Their length is nearly 5.5 feet to 11 feet and their weight is 350 kilograms to 1000 kilograms. They are mostly of black or grey color. Its female buffalo has little bit redness in its skin. A young wild ox has a distance of 1 meter between the tips of its two horns.

Elephant
 

An elephant is a heaviest and largest animal among all the mammals on earth (whale could be the largest animal but it lives in water, not on earth).

There are three kinds of elephants:

1.     African Bush Elephant.

2.     African Fast Elephant

3.    Asian Elephant.

These elephants are found in Africa, South Asia, and South-East Asia. Its long trunk is its identity which makes it different from other animals. It takes many kinds of work with its trunk. Its food is different kinds of creatures. The average age of an elephant is nearly 70 years. In the past, elephants were used in the wars. Weapons, jewelry and many other decoration pieces are made up of its teeth.

Hippopotamus

Hippopotamus could be defined as:

 The common hippopotamus or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous and aggressive mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus. The name comes from the ancient Greek for "river horse" 

                                                                                                                                                                             Source: Wikipedia

Hippopotamus such type of animal which lives in its own world without any worries. This animal seems to be very lazy but if something happens opposite to its nature then the anger of this animal is worth watching. These Hippopotamuses are present on earth from the last 60 million years. The average weight of hippopotamus is nearly 1300 to 1500 kilograms. Due to its very large weight, it can only run up to 30 kilometers per hour for a limited distance. It is counted in the mammals. Its big mouth and scary jaws make it different from the other animals.

500 people are killed by both of the elephants and hippopotamus at an average rate in a year.

Crocodiles
 

Crocodiles are counted in those kinds of reptiles which can live both on land and in water. Crocodiles are found in Africa, Asia, America and Australia. Crocodiles feed on fishes, birds and other small animals like deer etc. Their growth was started on earth some 55 million years ago. Its ferocious jaws and sharp teeth are the symbols of its power but its tail is also a point of its power. Its tongue cannot move freely because the panniculus inside its mouth is the cause of the limited movement of its tongue. The most sensitive part of its body is the plain skin of its belly. The length of crocodile ranges from 5 feet to 30 feet and its weight could be 1000 kilograms. The most interesting thing is that unlike humans, it can replace its old teeth with the new teeth 80 times in its 35 to 75 years of life.

As the eyes, nose, and ears of a crocodile are at the top of its head so it has the ability to hide its whole body inside the water. Due to this ability of crocodile, its prey remains unaware of its presence. Its sense of vision, sense of hearing and sense of smell is very sharp. It can live for a long period of time without any food. It can move with swiftness on land too. Female crocodile lays eggs on land and hides it with mud and bushes. In the old Egyptian Culture, it had religious importance too. “Crocodiles tear” is a very famous idiomatic expression in many languages. Purse, jackets and other things like these are made by its skin.

This is how crocodiles attack

Cestoda or Tapeworms

What is Cestoda?

Cestoda is a class of parasitic worms of the flatworm phylum. They are informally referred to as cestodes. The best-known species are commonly called tapeworms.

                                                                                                                                                                                    Source: Wikipedia

These are parasitical insects which enter into the small intestine of a human body through our food or our pet animals and grow there. In the beginning, they are just like a small sticky piece. Except for its head, its whole body is called proglottids. This piece could be 3 millimeters long. Every piece breeds with the eggs present in its tail and goes on making pieces with pieces and in this way, their quantity goes on increasing. The longest ever tapeworm found was 82 feet. Their average age is nearly 30 years.

Scorpion
 

I think no one is unaware of this vicious creature. It is famous for its poisonous and aggressive nature. It has color, size, and weight according to its geographical distribution. The most dangerous of them is black Scorpion. It has 8 legs and curved tail in which poisonous sting is hidden. Scorpion could be one-third of an inch to 9 inches long. It is on the earth from the last 430 million years. 1750 kinds of scorpion have been discovered out of which 25 are so dangerous that they can lead any human to death. It pains a lot when it bites. Scorpion is found everywhere except Antarctica.

This is how some experts have tested the scorpion sting and they made a video of scorpion stinging in a slow motion.

Dog

The loyalty of a dog is famous. The dog belongs to the family of wolf and people pet them in homes with keen interest. People use them for hunting, protection and many other purposes. It so intelligent that it can understand the direction of an eye of his master and follow his orders without any hesitation. Now a day’s police use them for finding drugs, weapons and other criminal objects. It is used for pulling carts in the areas like Alaska. Some of its kinds are very scary but its several kinds are so cute and innocent that they catch the heart on the spot. In the western countries, it has a level of house member. It is not clear in the history that when this animal was born on this earth but it is very clear that dog is the first animal whom man has adopted as a pet. Its remains have been found buried along the man from about 14700 years to 36000 years.

The saddest thing is that 25000 people are killed by this human-friendly animal every year.

Snakes

Snakes could be defined as:

Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes. Snakes are ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales 

                                                                                                                                                                                Source: Wikipedia

This is long a creature without legs. Snakes are counted in those reptiles which do not have any backbone. Many kinds of snakes have some extra joints in their heads which help them to swallow those animals which are larger than their head. Snakes are found everywhere except Antarctica. Sea Snakes are found abundantly in Indian Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. The smallest of its kind is at least 4 inches and the largest snakes could be of length 30 feet. Their growth was started on earth nearly about 143 million years to 167 million years. Most of its kinds are not poisonous. They kill their prey by swallowing it completely or by wrapping itself around its prey. It is said that snakes do not blink their eyes but it is not true because the eyelashes of snakes are clear like a mirror and they are closed continuously and snake looks through its eyelashes.

It is also famous that the snake likes some kind of music but it is not true because snakes do not have ears. It has a sense that it can only feel the sound waves through its skin. Cobra snake is very famous among all the snakes. It is also known as the king of all snakes. King Cobra is a very famous term. Cobra snake is very poisonous. In the old Egyptian Culture and now in the Hindu Culture, people worship snakes. It is said that Satan has distracted Adam and Eve by entering into the Heavens in the form of a snake.

Many kinds of medicines are made up the poison of snakes but it is also a bitter truth that 50,000 people are killed by the snakes every year.

Human Beings
 

What should I say about human? Humans are humans. Humans are superior to all the creatures. If he chooses the path of goodness then he becomes superior to the angels and if he chooses the path of bad deeds then he becomes the follower of Satan. God has given intellectual power and mind to man. He has used this power to rise up at this stage of development and progress and now he is finding the stretches of space and stars. But this thing is very sad that man has affected all the living things on the earth.

Unfortunately, 475000 people are killed by humans itself which is a very sad thing.

Mosquitoes
 

This is a very small insect and looks like a fly with two legs. It has a small trunk with which it sucks the blood from anybody.  Thousands of its kinds breed on the blood of animals which have a backbone. Itching starts due to its bite on the skin. Mosquitoes also become the cause of transferring disease from one animal to the other animal. The diseases caused by the bites of mosquitoes are listed below:

1.    Malaria

2.    Yellow Fever

3.    Dengue Fever

4.    Zika Virus

Due to these diseases, mosquitoes are counted in the worlds dangerous living things. A research tells us that, they were present on the earth nearly 79 million years ago but according to some other researchers, its history is two times older than this. The most amazing thing is that only female mosquito sucks the blood, male mosquito lives on the juices of plants. Several medicines are used to kill them or protect humans from it.

1 million people die due to the diseases caused by this small looking creature.

All these facts and figures are at a side but there are two other facts too by which humanity feels ashamed. One is that no animal kills the other animal of its own family or kingdom or its own kind. This credit only goes to the man that he has killed a number of other men and still, he is killing other men without any hesitation. Hitler and Genghis Khan have killed many people, uncounted numbers of people were killed in the two world wars. Many were killed in Japan by the atomic bomb and many are still being killed in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Kashmir, Palestine, and Burma.

The question arises is that man has made deadly weapons to kill the other men then why not the international organization has given the number one position to man for the most dangerous animal who kills humans?
