I was first introduced to the deadliest animals in 2007 in a conversation I remember to this day. I was impressed that a hippopotamus was even deadlier than a lion back then.
And just now I found this chart:
Yes, the hippo is among those on the list, but there are other animals on that list as well. Obscure ones, like the Assassin bug, even dogs made it to the top 5. But we as the human race fit right into it, making us not a lot different than the others on the list, right?
