Hungry, Hungry Hippos
Average Annual Death Toll: 500
Although the hippos on a kid’s bedroom wall look cute and friendly, they are definitely one animal you do not want to cross. These not-so-gentle giants scare easily and are extremely aggressive. Hippos will not hesitate to attack a human, especially if one of its young babies are near. While hippos can’t jump, they can run over 20 mph and their enormous jaws house 20” canines. Even alligators are afraid of them and you should be, too.
