There are the fastest, largest and even cutest animals. But what are the most dangerous animals on our planet? We provide the answer in the photo gallery. One or the other animal "villain" should be surprising. Poison dart frog: The venom that is transmitted through the skin can lead to death. - Image: Shutterstock / Dirk Ercken

When you think about what the most dangerous animals in the world are, sharks, spiders, lions or maybe wolves come to mind. Our top 5 animals that are not to be trifled with, however, have some surprises in store. The poison dart frog ends up at the top of the list - "Small but powerful!" takes on a whole new meaning here, but in a negative sense. The frog species, which is only about five centimeters in size, is extremely toxic. The conspicuous animal does not produce any poison itself, but by eating other poisonous animals it absorbs their poison and releases it via the skin. When touched, the so-called cramp poison can lead to death.

Dangerous snake: Inland Taipan could kill 200 adult people

The hippopotamus, on the other hand, is much more threatening just by its appearance. The mammal usually lives a quiet life. But if you approach the area and especially the children of hippos, the hippos, which weigh up to 4.5 tons, become furies - and sink entire boats. Of course, a snake is also one of the most dangerous animals in the world. We are talking about the domestic Taipan. Native to Australia, the animal is considered the most venomous snake ever. The amount of nerve poison the Inland Taipan carries could theoretically kill 200 adult people.

Anopheles mosquito is one of the most dangerous animals in the world

One should also have more than just respect for the Portuguese galley. What sounds like a ship is a kind of jellyfish that lives in the Pacific Ocean - and one of the most dangerous animals in the world: the tentacles of the Portuguese galley, which are up to 50 meters long, also contain a neurotoxin that can cause respiratory failure and heart failure when touched. Perhaps the most dangerous animal in the world is much smaller: the Anopheles mosquito. It is known that the mosquito transmits the malaria pathogen. The World Health Organization (WHO) stated in a 2012 report that tragically one child in Africa dies of malaria every minute. In 2012, 600,000 people worldwide fell victim to the pathogen.
