Just as a disclaimer – all animals are potentially dangerous (yes, even your cuddly hamster). If you mess with them they’ll mess with you. This list is not intended to make anyone hate cuddly animals. End of disclaimer. With that said, get ready for a safari because these are 25 dangerous animals that are deceptively cute!
Found in Australia, this bird looks rather ridiculous but trust us, if you disturb it, prepare for attempted disembowelment (yes, that is actually their go-to attack strategy).
You thought they just prance around and eat grass? You better adjust your preconceptions. Deer, especially bucks, have been known to charge and trample humans.
We’re not talking about house pets, nor are we talking about lions. We mean the mid-sized cuddly looking pumas and panthers. Don’t be deceived by their smaller stature, they are often just as dangerous as their lion/tiger counterparts.
They look like fun animals, but guess what? They kill sharks. And guess what else? They could easily do the same to you.
They are extremely territorial and do not hesitate to use their teeth.
