Top Most Dangerous Animals in the World

#1 Bullet ant
The bullet ant is active all over the forest, from the floor to the treetops. It is usually found on lianas and tree trunks close to the ground. This insect lives from Nicaragua down to the Amazon. This long, black ant is distinct from other ants in Central America because it is enormous, second only to the Greater Giant Hunting Ant. The bullet ant can reach 2.5 cm long. The bullet ant is hairier than fellow hunting ants. The bullet ant has one of the most painful insect stings or bites that you can encounter in central America. Sometimes they fall from higher tree branches and attack when they encounter a large, frightening creature, such as a human. First the bullet ant bites; once the mandibles are securely squeezing the victim, the ant turns its abdomen to sting at the same time. While this may cause some pain and swelling, the venom does not cause sickness or death, and bullet ants are not encountered in droves and swarms like army ants. This hunting ant eats insects, plant exudates, and sap.
#2 Vampire Bats
Unlike other species of bats, vampire bats can run, walk, and hop on all fours. While much of the world sleeps, vampire bats emerge from dark caves, mines, tree hollows, and abandoned buildings in Mexico and Central and South America. Like the legendary monster that they’re named after, these small mammals drink the blood of other animals for survival. They feed on cows, pigs, horses, and birds. Found in Mexico and Central and South America, vampire bats even occasionally bite humans for blood. (But it’s very rare!). Rather than sucking blood like a vampire, these bats make a small cut with their teeth, then lap up the flowing blood with their tongues. The animals are so light and graceful that they can sometimes drink blood from an animal for more than 30 minutes without waking it up. The blood-sucking doesn’t even hurt their prey. If they can’t find blood for two nights in a row, they’ll die. Even though bat bites don’t hurt, vampire bats can spread a disease called rabies. However, vampire bats can actually be quite tame, and even friendly to humans.
#3 Wandering spider
The spider’s name means “murderess” in Greek, which is appropriate for the deadly arachnid. There are nine species of Brazilian wandering spider, all of which are nocturnal and can be found in Brazil. And it’s no wonder why — it’s one of the most venomous spiders on Earth. Its bite, which delivers neurotoxic venom, can be deadly to humans, especially children, although antivenom makes death unlikely.
#4 Red-bellied piranha
Red-bellied piranhas live in lakes and rivers in South America. They sometimes use their mighty mouths to gobble up other fish or animals such as shrimp, worms, and mollusks. They swim and hunt in shoals, or schools, that can include more than a hundred individuals. According to legend, the animals, which can grow about 14 inches long, have even devoured human swimmers.
#5 Electric eel
The electric eel gets its name from its shocking abilities! Special organs in the eel’s body release powerful electric charges of up to 650 volts—that’s more than five times the power of a standard United States wall socket! Electric eels are nocturnal, live in muddy, dark waters, and have poor eyesight. So instead of using eyes, electric eels emit a weak electric signal, which they use like radar to navigate, to find a mate, and to find prey. Once prey is found, electric eels will use a much stronger shock to stun prey, usually smaller fish. Electric eels can grow up to 8 feet (2.5 meters) in length. Despite their appearance, electric eels aren’t actually eels at all! They are more closely related to carp and catfish. The shock of an electric eel has been known to knock a horse off its feet.
