In this article, we take a look at animals with the worst temper.
1. The hippopotamus
hippopotamus (also known as the hippo) leads our list of the most hostile and irascible animals, despite the fact that it primarily consumes plants. Hippos manage to kill crocodiles in addition to killing more humans than crocodiles.
These living tanks are the third-largest land animal (after elephants and rhinoceroses) and can travel at a top speed of 19 mph (30 km/h), making them a deadly opponent when enraged and with a score to settle. Hippos frequently capsize boats, killing dozens of people in the process.
2. Saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus)
The sea crocodile, also known as the saltwater crocodile or saltie, is an apex predator that may reach heights of 20 feet (6 meters) and weights of 2,900 pounds (1,300 kg). With a bite force of 16,414 newtons, it is capable of attacking nearly any animal, including people, for territorial or predatory purposes.
Due to their intense aggression, absence of predators, and relatively long lifespans—many of which reach 70 years old—animals frequently live lives that are equivalent to those of humans. The fact that the saltwater crocodile has existed as a species for at least 5 million years attests to its astounding success.
3. Africanized honey bee
Due to exaggerated media accounts, the Africanized honey bee (also known as the killer bee) is a hybrid that is excessively feared. The fact that they are more easily provoked and attacked in larger numbers than other bee species makes them more dangerous than other bee species even if they do not deliberately seek out and attack humans.
When defending their colonies, they are especially aggressive and will pursue potential threats up to a quarter of a mile away (400 m). Since they can sting up to 10 times more often than European honey bees, it’s possible that they will continue to be much feared, even though the folklore would have it that there are only two human fatalities year.
4. Wild boar
The wild boar, also known as a wild swine or wild pig, is a stocky relative of the pig that has a head that is one-third the size of its body. Their size fluctuates depending on the environment where they are found, although it is not unusual for them to exceed 290 lb (130 kg).
These omnivores, which are immune to snake venom, have well-developed tusks and a top running speed of 25 mph (40 km/h), and during rutting season, they charge larger animals without being provoked. Their method of assault resembles a bull’s in many ways. The boar will repeat the attack until it believes the threat to its safety has been neutralized if the initial run fails to render the target immobile…..See More
