25 Most Dangerous Animals of 2017

In the world, there are two types of animals, domesticated and wild. Some animals, like cats and dogs, were able to be tamed, but on the other hand, some animals will never be tamed and would probably pose a threat to humans at any level.

Sometimes, people are repelled by the vicious looks of these animals. It’s a good thing too because some animals are very poisonous or they could get very aggressive. While most venomous creatures are identifiable and there are antidotes created for the venom, there are still species where there is no known cure. Beware of those animals, and we will, of course, feature some of them on our list. Now let’s take a peek at the 25 Most Dangerous Animals in 2017.

#25 – The African Bush Elephant

Although we depict elephants as docile animals, some species from the elephant kingdom aren’t that docile such as the African bush elephants.

The African bush elephant is the biggest animal in the world and it has zero natural predators, besides man, who is not its natural predator. The tamed elephants you have seen in the zoos are simply not the same as ones you will encounter in the wilderness. They could attack you if they see you standing 100 meters away or even 500 meters away.

Stay away particularly from male elephants during the time when the male elephants are in the musth phase. This phase is characterized by excessive amounts of testosterone in the male elephant’s bloodstream which makes them extremely aggressive.
