    Man, of course, is the most dangerous animal.

    The honey badger.  Talk about persistent and aggressive!  Hunting one of these would be like trying to take down Road Runner.

    Man, animal... depends on your definition of animal.

    That would depend on the person, it depends on the situation too, also which mood the animal is in. it could be an elephant, a  snake, and it could even be a spider

    I think it actually depends on what species you are.

    Hate to say this, being a horse owner and lover myself, But, at least in the U.S.,I beleive they account for more deaths and serious injury than any other animal. Just ask your insurance company.

    If you take opposable thumbs and tool making out of the equation I thin k it has to be the grizzly bear.

    I beg to disagree.  Chupacabras are only the second most dangerous. The most dangerous are politicians.

    Someone seems to have answered this already but Humans are the world's most dangerous animals by far. The statistics are undeniable. Humans have killed other humans and creatures in numbers that dwarf even those of the deadliest killers among the "lower" animals.

    It would have to be a man/woman that have had their brains eaten by aliens and are now liberals. They are sad and deadly and the worst part is they don't even know what their doing or saying! Be very careful when handling them!

    Oooh I'd say the most dangerous animal to man is a mosquito... with malaria alone those boogers kill 1 million people a year (at least.) Then there's West Nile, EEE, dengue fever, yellow fever... all mosquito borne!

    Though I must say fleas have done some great damage too. It was fleas that carried the bubonic plague that killed 30-60% of Europe in the 1300's.

    After them I'd say domestic animals pose the greatest risk of maulings, injury, and disease... Bird flu, swine flew, anthrax, various pox diseases, diphtheria, leptospirosis, brucellosis, E coli, salmonella, AIDs (origionally came from other primates,) botulism, foot and mouth disease, psitticosis, rocky mountain spotted fever, tape worms and parasites, etc... all can be carried or passed on by our domestics. This isn't to mention bite wounds can get infected and kill and the larger domestics can kill you outright in accidents or maulings...

    I have been told that on the african continent the hippo is the one animal that kills the largest number of people per year ... who would have thought that?

    If that makes it the most dangerous animal ... I really don't know. I have a hard time picturing a hippo actually attacking a human. My fantasy is more likely to offer me images of a hippo accidentally sitting on some guy fishing on a riverbank wink

    Why man of course. Man kills everything, eats every things and destroys even what is given to him by God. When his strength falls short  he uses weapons to compensate for his shortcomings. His need of comfort is so great , that he does not  bother about his descendents, and the kind of world that they will be living in. His quest of knowledge takes him to other planets and space, but he does not care for the planet that he is living in.

    Too easy.  The correct answer to this question is homo sapiens.
    TH White suggested we change the latin to homo feros (ferocious man) ...and I'd have to agree with him.

    Man can kill more animals (including other humans) than every other animal on the planet combined. Additionally, man can damage the environment and cause other animals to die indirectly.

    No other animal on the planet has the potential to 'destroy' the world in the same way man has - Nuclear Weapons, Global Warming, 'messing around with quantum physics' etc.

    No other animal can kill from 200 miles away with an electronic device.

    Is man an animal? I don't think the term appropriately describes us. We are the only species on this planet that, once they no longer have to worry about survival, have the ability to ponder their own existence. Art, music, philosophy, these are not the creations of an animal but the expressions of a higher consciousness. To label 'man' as an animal one disregards hundreds of thousands of years of evolution and forward thought.
    So I'm gonna go with hippo, I heard they kill more humans than any other animal.

    The snake - any snake - big or small - if it is a snake, I'm dead before it even comes near me!  Seriously I am reminded of that movie I Dreamed of Africa - I'm probably so going to have nightmares now!  I know there are way more deadly animals but snakes just do it for me!!!  The snakes in this movie though there were no anti-venom for....yikes!

    Man is the most dangerous animal..."he" does negative acts out of big egos and bad attitudes. "he" reacts to negativity with more negativity...instead of being understanding towards others, more often than not, "man" will turn his back and hope no one notices he did so...

    In the words of Jack Handy, it would have to be a shark riding on an elephant's back...just trampling and eating everything in its path. I guess just for good measure we could insist that it was a shark with frickin laser beams on its head.

    Humans are the most dangerous animals in the world. Look at the history. One human can kill more Earthly creatures than any other animals. Being the most intelligent animal on the planet, we fail to realize that we are in fact animals

    I think the most dangerous animal on earth is human being himself since he has been given the superior intelligence by God as compared to any other living being on earth. So, if not treated properly, he may do to others anything that one can not even imagine, using his intelligence.

    I think the LION is the most dangerous because they hunt in a group (pride) and they are relentless. they will stalk their prey for days and almost nothing can stop them
