Although human beings, who have been striving since the day they existed to tame the Wild, have tamed animals such as cats and dogs, they have still not been able to establish superiority in many animals. Naturally, these animals can end humans. Most people can be decapitated from life by a snake or killer bee swarm that is meters long, waiting for a peaceful death in their sleep. Even worse, he can writhe in pain with tapeworms that completely invade the brain!

There are unbearable moments when animals can kill people. Millions of people, especially in the Wild, can be attacked by dangerous animals and lose their lives. In fact, there are many people who adapt to city life and are mostly not in danger, but when going to parts of Africa, Asia, South America and even Australia, you need to be vigilant.

You could be attacked by an angry hippo with teeth as big as a can of Coke, huge in thickness. Beyond the hippo, crocodiles are an animal that most people fear and have little chance of surviving when attacked.

These animals, which can grow up to about 7 meters, live mostly in river habitat. Crocodiles, which catch and swallow their prey in a short time with their strong jaw structure and sharp teeth, first drag their large prey into the water and then eat it.

The number of people who survived the crocodile attack is quite low. Television presenter, who knows the nature of crocodiles well, also says they will be done when faced with a possible crocodile attack, who says her skin is too thick, her teeth about 13 tons strong, says the gator’s weakest point is its eyes. So if you come across a crocodile, you have to attack its eyes first.

Although bees are very important for the continuity of our lives, in some cases they can even turn into ‘killers’. Hundreds of cases have been recorded in which honey bees attack people in flocks. These bees can chase people for about 400 meters. According to official records, 1,000’s of people die due to these bees.

African bees are famous in America for their aggressive behavior, and because of this behavior, honey bees are also called ‘killer bees’. Bees can travel in colonies, and 800 thousand killer bees can chase a person or animal at once.decapitated. Bee stings are decisively fatal, especially for those with allergies. An adult person dies from about 1,000 bee stings, while in children this number decimates to 500.

Although snakes are scary enough, there are some species that are among the most deceptive in the world. One of them, the Black Mamba, is known as Africa’s deadliest snake. The venom of this snake kills the average person in about 45 minutes.

Reaching up to 4 and a half feet long, this species of snake can reach as high as a third of its body. Snake expert says the Black Mamba species is highly venomous. This snake species, which attracts attention with its very fast movements and aggressive attitude, moves into an upright position when it perceives an attack or threat and attacks the opposite side.

Is it possible to get rid of the black Mamba bite? In fact, it is possible, but death rates are quite high, as it is difficult to find an antidote in southern and Eastern African regions. If an antidote is not administered after the bite of this snake, the person is 100 percent likely to die. Even just two drops of poison cause an adult to experience loss of consciousness and respiratory failure. In the final stage, it causes heart failure and certain death occurs.


Here we come to the scariest: tapeworms. These worm-like tapeworms, which pass from human to animal, find their place in the digestive system of humans, especially. In some cases, these small creatures, which even reach the brain, can reach up to 10 cm.

Tapeworms, which in many stories have caused people to die, killing in a short time when they reached the brain. The tapeworm, which reached a boy’s brain in India, spawned there, killing the 18-year-old. The unnamed man, who was taken to hospital with a seizure, grabbed this tapeworm because of the meat he ate.

A tissue infection caused by tapeworms, neurocysticercosis, a type of cysticerosis, becomes fatal because it takes time to diagnose. Neurocysticercosis is cited as one of the most common causes of seizures in developing countries. In areas with very low health conditions, these cases are mostly seen in Latin America, Asia and Africa.

There are also situations that do not manifest themselves as soon as thought. For example, an adult tapeworm can live where it is located for up to 20 years and can reach a length of 15 meters.

Hyenas, made much scarier by their sarcastic laughing sounds, are famous for eating people while they are alive. These animals, which live for about 20-25 years, can grow to 2 meters in height, while their weight ranges from 40-80 kilograms. Being chased or caught by these animals, which can run 60 kilometres an hour, causes one of the world’s worst deaths.

The reason for this is that hyenas have the strongest jaws in the animal kingdom. If they decide to eat you, they’ll start using their ‘jaws’ right away. American author said, “If the spotted hyenas attack you, you will suffer a lot. Incredibly dangerous, these animals are famous for attacking while you sleep.” he says.

These animals bite off part of your face and the sensitive places they find in your body, and they start eating while you’re still alive,” said. This is among the worst deaths because it will take too long, by saying that “hyenas are actually animals to be feared,” he points out.

In one incident a hyena targets a sleeping man’s head. A hyena has been scalped in an incident in the Ethiopian capital, causing a man to die in agony.

Although hippos never come to people’s minds as a harmful animal, they can run 30 kilometers per hour. The ‘mouth’ feature that makes hippos that show much more of their performance on land at sea is actually dangerous. The teeth of these creatures, which can open their jaws at 180 degrees, are also as thick as a Coke can. There are as many as 500 cases where people have been attacked and killed on land and sea during the period when they are cranky.

Bears are a wild mammal that also has quite a lot of species in Turkey. A species called the sloth bear and native to Asia is the most aggressive bear in the world. Although they are less than 20 thousand, they are known as the bear species with the highest rate of killing humans and other creatures.

According to records from the last 20 years, sloth bears have either dismembered or killed thousands of people. A male nature researcher, who survived the three-hour attack, lost an eye and his face was shattered. The signature move of these animals is that they use their teeth and claws very quickly, which are undoubtedly as sharp as razors. Cases of these attacks are also expected to increase as humans continue to attack and enter the animals ‘ natural areas.
