It’s the second most poisonous vertebrate on the planet, and there is no antidote. Using a tetrodotoxin 1,200 more powerful than cyanide, it kills you by paralyzing your diaphragm and making it impossible to breathe.

Box Jellyfish

Even a little bit of this creature’s venom can stop your heart. Its deadly toxin attacks your heart, nervous system, and skin cells. The excruciating pain causes people to usually drown before they reach the shore. Those lucky enough to survive still go through horrible pain for weeks.

Moose

Don’t be fooled. These massive and majestic creatures attack more people annually than bears, mostly because moose outnumbered bears 3 to 1, but also because people do stupid things like throw things at them. While they’re generally non-aggressive, that changes when defending a calf.

22

Cassowary

Found in Papua New Guinea and Australia, if you disturb this bird, do not expect to outrun it. To make matters worse, it has a tendency to break into people’s homes. Once it catches you, it’ll disembowel you with its claws.

Bears

Although the moose has a slightly worse track record, bears are definitely willing and capable of killing humans, even the big, docile panda bears.
