If you own a pet, you probably know how it’s going to behave.
A dog might want to spend every moment with you and be cuddled, a cat might spend its days sleeping, and a rat might start exercising on its running wheel the very moment you lie down on your bed. However, wild animals are completely different.
They are not domesticated, and their behavior is unpredictable.
In today’s article, we’re going to explore the 10 Dangerous wild Animals that are so Unpredictable
Some will surprise you, as they include animals that are generally viewed as peaceful and not posing a threat…
10. Indian Cobra
Let’s start this list with the Indian cobra, one of the most iconic snakes in the Indian subcontinent.
It’s widely referenced in Hindu texts, making it a respected animal with deep roots in Indian culture.
They can grow up to 5 feet (152 cm) long, and they primarily feed on small rodents.
However, rodents live near humans, and as a result, humans encounter these cobras on a daily basis.
It’s a beautiful animal, but its unpredictable temper makes it extremely dangerous.
When it’s threatened, the cobra expands its hood, trying to make itself appear bigger and scare away predators.
In case the predator doesn’t budge, the Indian cobra attacks and injects its potent venom into the victim. How to Survive the Most Aggressive Animals
It’s cardiotoxic and destroys nervous tissue, leading to paralysis and in extreme cases, cardiac arrest or respiratory failure.
As a result, as many as 20-30% of untreated victims fail to survive the bite.
9. Sun Bear
Next up we have the sun bear, which is the smallest species of the Ursidae or bear fami
Despite looking cute, it’s nothing like your friendly Winnie the Pooh and is actually one of the most unpredictable animals on Earth.
It stands just 28 inches (70 cm) at shoulder height, is 4 – 5 feet (120 – 152 cm) long, and weighs anywhere from 60 – 150 pounds (27 – 68 kg).
They’re extremely aggressive because of their small stature. They can’t allow themselves to just chill and wait out the potential danger, they have to attack first.
The only saving grace about sun bears is that they’re nocturnal animals, so you’re unlikely to encounter one during the daytime.
This species inhabits the jungles and forests of Southeast Asia, ranging from China to India and even Indonesia.
They are omnivorous, having a varied diet consisting of small animals, fruits, and honey. You probably wonder why sun bears are called so. Well, the explanation is easy.
They got such a name because of a circular yellow patch on their neck, that resembles the sun.
Although elephants are known as ¨gentle giants¨ and possess impressive intelligence, they are not the animal you want to pet during a safari tour.
Currently, only 3 species of elephants walk our earth, including the African bush elephant, African forest elephant, and Asian elephant.
The African bush species is the largest, growing up to 14,000 pounds (6350 kg) in weight and 11 feet (3.35 m) in shoulder height.
The other two species are smaller, weighing about 6000 pounds (2700 kg), and reaching a height of 7 feet (213 cm).
Elephants take up to 500 human lives annually.
Male elephants that are called bulls become extremely aggressive during the mating season and often engage in sparring with other bulls in their herd.
If you’re nearby during it, we advise you to pray, because this aggression often gets out of hand and you might become the victim.
Additionally, there are records of Asian elephants invading small forest villages and trampling everything in their way.
7. Driver Ants
Let’s move from the largest land animal to one of the smallest – driver ants. However, in the ant world, these ants have nothing to do with the word “small”.
They live in one of the largest colonies, reaching up to 20 million individuals, and their queens are the largest existing ants, reaching up to 2.4 inches (63 mm) in body length.
Driver ants live in nests called bivouacs, that is constructed out of the ants themselves!
It’s a living structure that protects the queen and larvae from outside dangers.
Driver ants can be found in Central and East Africa, and are nomadic, meaning they are constantly on the move.
They usually stay at the same location for a few days, but sometimes remain in place for a couple of months.
Because of their huge and powerful mandibles, they are capable of shredding through everything in their way, from plants to humans!
If you ever visit Africa, the last thing you want to do is to sleep on the driver ants’ path.
Chimpanzees are humans’ closest living relatives. As a result, it comes as no surprise that they are incredibly intelligent and capable of using rudimentary tools.
They can have a height of 4 feet 11 inches (150 cm) and weigh up to 154 pounds (70 kg).
Chimpanzees spend a lot of time in trees, which results in an incredibly robust and strong physique.
Despite being intelligent and closely related to us, they lack many things that make us human, namely compassion, morals, and self-control.
As a result, chimpanzees are incredibly unpredictable and violent.
There’s even a recorded war between two separate chimp communities, called the Gombe Chimpanzee War.
It lasted for over 4 years, during which over 10 chimps passed away.
5. Cape Buffalo
Cape Buffalo is one of the animals included in the so-called “Big Five game”.
A group of animals that are notoriously difficult to hunt on foot, because of their physical characteristics.
Among them are the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephants, and cape buffalos.
Hunters and poachers think of these animals as the Holy Grail of game hunting, but why cape buffalo is included in this group?
It’s because despite being herbivorous and weighing nearly 2000 pounds (907 kg), they can reach the speed of 37 mph (59 kph).
Cape buffalos also carry horns that can grow up to 2 feet (60 cm) long, and they are incredibly short-tempered.
Simply approaching one of them can trigger a fight or flight response, and let me tell you, cape buffalos only know how to fight.
They are responsible for about 200 human deaths each year and are one of the most unpredictable wild animals on Earth….…
4. Blue Shark
For our next entry, let’s dive deep into the oceans and meet the blue shark, which can grow up to 10 feet (3 m) in length and weigh up to 400 pounds (181 kg).
This species is not the largest shark species there, but its strange behavior makes it one of the most unpredictable animals.
Blue sharks migrate long distances, often covering up to 500 miles (804 km) in months of travel. 7 Animals with unique Camouflage abilities
During these migration periods, blue sharks ride the ocean currents and can appear lethargic, but their slim build allows them to quickly accelerate and deal a lethal blow to their predators or prey……
Hippopotamuses might look cute, but in this case, appearance is extremely deceiving. They are actually responsible for the most human deaths of any wild mammal.
Each year they take about 500 human lives, and it comes as no surprise because they’re extremely territorial.
Just approaching their territory will launch hippos into a furry that will most likely end in a tragedy. 10 strongest animals in the world
They can weigh up to 3300 pounds (1500 kg) and reach the speed of 19 mph (30 km/h).
However, the most terrifying aspect of this animal is its mouth. It can open at a 180-degree angle, and bite with a force of 2000 PSI.
Its bite is 3 times stronger than a lion’s! To brighten up your mood, let’s finish this entry with a fun fact.
While hippos are reminiscent of pigs, their closest living relatives are actually whales!
2. Black Mamba
We have another snake on this list, this time the black mamba. It’s the deadliest snake in Africa, and its venom has a 100% mortality rate if untreated.
These snakes rarely live near humans, however, their unpredictable behavior and lethal venom make you wish that you’re not going to encounter them in the wild.
Black mambas can sense approaching predators from as far as 130 feet (40 m).
As a result, they pose an incredible threat, because their greenish-gray color blends perfectly with the woodlands and savannahs that they inhabit.
And because they’re difficult to spot even if you’re standing right in front of it.
And yes, black mambas aren’t black! They get their name from their pitch-dark mouth which is home to 6.5 mm-long fangs.
Let’s finish today’s article with arguably the cutest animal on this list, the wolverine.
They inhabit the Northern Hemisphere and can be found in the US, Canada, Norway, Sweden, and even Russia.
They weigh up to 60 pounds (27 kg) and stand 18 inches (45 cm) at the shoulder.
Wolverine size is comparable to many medium-size dogs, like a bearded collie, a bulldog, or a bull terrier.
However, unlike these cute dogs, wolverines are unpredictable and are regarded as one of the most ferocious animals on Earth.
Despite having a bite force of just 50 pounds per square inch, they can easily take on larger animals.
There are records of wolverines successfully preying on deer, lynx, and even bison! Wolverines can be seen as the Napoleon of the animal kingdom.
