Heading our top list of bears: American black, white, and grizzly. All these species grow up to 6 feet (2 m) and weigh up to 800 pounds (363 kg).
Grizzlies can be quite aggressive, especially protecting cubs. Say, jaw grizzly calmly eat a bowling ball. It is unlikely you will want to check on the fortress of his skull.
American black bears, or Baibolov, less grizzly and a meeting with the person is inclined to climb the tree, and not to attack. However it happens and the last. So, in June of 2017, the American killed a 16-year-old participants of mass running on rough terrain in Alaska.
The three most dangerous snakes in North America — the rattlesnake, water and odnogolosy Copperhead.
Among the most dangerous rattlesnakes in the United States is the Texas rattlesnake. This is a very aggressive reptile. It rushes at a person’s soon after the warning sound of his “rattles”. Ignore the warning and you will have hard times.
The Puma, or mountain lion, is the largest member of the cat family in America. Usually ambush, crashing down on the prey: deer, sheep, wild horses.

This animal is found almost worldwide. In the United States, wolves live mainly in the Great lakes region, Northern Rockies and South-West of the country. Jaws of the wolf is twice as strong as a dog, they are easy to eat bones. In addition, the gray wolf is fast and agile — with one leap he overcomes to 16 feet (5 m). Grey wolves live in packs, which makes them even more dangerous. However, wolves usually do not attack first, if it is not to provoke or if the animal is not hungry and is not sick with rabies. From 2005 to 2010 in the United States wolves have killed 2 people.
Once alligators were close to extinction, but today they feel very freely in the lakes and marshes of the southeastern United States. Alligator — omnivorous predator. He eats anything: fish, birds, frogs, snakes, deer, dogs, calves, and if you happen, and people. We will remind, this month in Florida alligator mauled a woman walking a dog.
6. White-tailed (virgin) deer
Many people wonder: how so? Because deer are harmless! It’s simple. Running across the road, deer are responsible for an accident, often fatal. It was “Bambi” is responsible for 29 thousand injuries of Americans and 130-300 deaths a year.
7. Great white shark
Of all oceanic sharks most dangerous to humans great white shark. This predator grows to 20 feet long (6 m).
In North America great white sharks are commonly found off the coast of California and Florida, as well as in the North-East of the country, on the Atlantic coast. New Smyrna beach in Florida is generally considered the “world capital” of sharks.
For this sharks the same loot as any other living creature. Unfortunately, only one bite can be fatal.
8. Africanized bees
They are also called “killer bees”. Why? The fact is that even the slightest threat to the hive (for example, noise of vehicle) they take very seriously, immediately rushing to the attack. Africanized bees may pursue a “threat” to the mile. Their venom is not so strong, but because they all sting swarm, the overall effect of the bites is very noticeable. If their victim is allergic to bee venom — she may die. Every year in the US due to bee stings die from 40 to 50 people.
9. Arizona wood Scorpion
The length of this animal is only about 3 inches (8 cm), but it is the most venomous Scorpion in North America. Poison wood Arizona Scorpions cause severe pain, partial paralysis and breathing problems. Very often they crawl into the house. Fortunately, the victim of the bite rarely die. At risk — young children and debilitated and elderly people.
10. Brown recluse spider
Found in the southern United States. This poisonous spider likes to rest in cool dark places, such as shoes, cardboard boxes and even boxes under piles of clothes. Its bite is not so noticeable, but after 2-8 hours, everything changes. As in the case of an Arizona Scorpion-most deaths in children under 7 years of age, the elderly with weak immune systems.
No, no Wolverine retractable claws of adamantium, and they are not able to quickly recover from wounds. However, these fearless creatures often attack much larger animals than themselves. (The case when a Wolverine killed a polar bear). Not “disdain” Wolverine and man. In one word, these predators are hardy and voracious.
In the folklore of native Americans, the coyote is often depicted as a clever guy — like the trickster. If he’s dangerous in real life? Most coyotes don’t attack people when they’re not hungry or don’t have rabies. But a rabid coyote would attack and right in the middle of the city, as happened recently in the state of new York. In addition, these animals are carriers of many parasites.
Believe it or not, walking in the national parks, you are at risk of attacks not only the bear but also of Buffalo. American bison are very aggressive in the breeding season and do not hesitate to respond to attacks with provocation. Bison horns reach 2 feet (61 cm) in length. In addition, you will not be able to escape from this animal — it’s much faster than you.
