Here are the top 10 DEADLY creatures known to Man. HORRIFYING!

We humans are known as to be at the top of the food chain, but little did we know that there are also creatures that are more powerful than us!

There are dangerous animals here on earth, but there are also DEADLY creatures living here with us! Deadly animals that are equipped with poisons and venom are the most anticipated part of it.

These deadliest creatures can kill humans in less than a minute. We are constantly efforts to make a better and safer life for ourselves, but the world remains a dangerous place.

Nowadays, people are fascinated in trekking and hiking in the forest, no matter how alert, careful or pro you are, none of us can know the next thing that these deadly creatures can do when we encounter them.

So here are the list of today's DEADLY creatures and whenever you see them, you better run!

1. Mosquito’s - The most deadly ­animal in the world is the mosquito. It's bite result in the deaths of more than 1 million people every year. It's not the mosquito itself that kills, but rather a parasite the mosquito carries. The mosquito transmits malaria after biting an infected person and then passes along the parasite to the next person it nibbles on.

Malaria is a blood-transmitted disease, which means you can't contract it from casual contact with another person. Mosquitoes are primarily to blame for the spread of malaria infection.

2. Snakes - There are over thousands of snake species out there, there are harmless but there are also those who can kill you in less than a minute. Snakes with venom are the deadliest. Venom is injected into victims by means of a bite, sting or other sharp body feature,[2] which differentiates it from poison. While the common cobra or rattlesnake are known for their toxicity, there are far more venomous snakes out there, like the Inland Taipan, the Eastern Brown snake, Black Tiger snake, and Western Australian Tiger snake. Venomous animals resulted in 57,000 human deaths in 2013, down from 76,000 deaths in 1990. 

3. Domestic Dogs - We love dogs, right? Who wouldn't like to have a pet dog at home? They are cute, cuddly and very sweet. But in the wrong hands, these cuddly dogs can be dangerous. An animal bite may also cause serious bacterial infections of soft tissues or bone which can become life-threatening if untreated. Most bites occur in children. In the 1980s and 1990s the US averaged 17 fatalities per year, while in the 2000s this has increased to 26. 77% of dog bites are from the pet of family or friends, and 50% of attacks occur on the dog owner's property. Animal bites, most of which are from dogs, are the reason for 1% of visits to an emergency department in the United States.

4. The Tsetse Fly - is known as tik-tik flies, are large biting flies that inhabit much of midcontinental Africa between the Sahara and the Kalahari Deserts. The Tsetse is known for its disease transmission and is responsible for over 10,000 deaths per year, as seen in the case of the spread of African sleeping sickness – a disease with an 80% mortality rate.

5. The Assassin Bug - or Kissing bugs are found all across the bottom two-thirds of the United States, and predominantly in Arizona, California, Texas, and New Mexico. These bugs not only bite, but their bites spread the parasite that causes Chagas disease, a disorder that does damage to major organs and can be fatal. They work their way into homes and search out dark, cool places to stay during the day, only leaving again at night for food. They particularly like hiding between mattresses.

6. The Freshwater Snail - Though they are a delicacy in some parts of the world, and pets to some, there is something malicious about the Freshwater Snail that all must be wary of. Schistosoma, a kind of flat worm parasite, are responsible for a high amount of human deaths per year, easily reaching 10,000 people. Schistosoma, also known as blood-flukes, is directly responsible for Schistosomiasis, a disease that could lead to liver damage, kidney failure, or bladder cancer. The disease is symptomized with diarrhea, abdominal pain, bloody stool, and traces of blood in urine. Once infected by Schistosoma, any human being could become a breeding ground, with the parasites eggs being laid in anywhere from the bladder to the kidneys.

7. Scorpions - are nocturnal animals that live in tropical areas and deserts. Scorpion venom is a neurotoxin, a chemical that affects the nervous system, ultimately killing or paralyzing their prey. Among the most dangerous scorpion species is Leiurus quinquestriatus, also known as death stalker scorpion. This type of scorpion carries the some of the most potent venom in the group. Other scorpions in the same family Buthidae, such as the Parabuthus, Tityus, Centruroides, and Androctonus are also known to possess strong venoms.

8. Crocodiles - The larger species of crocodiles can be very dangerous to humans. The Saltwater and Nile crocodiles are the most dangerous, killing hundreds of people each year in parts of South-East Asia and Africa. American alligators, Mugger crocodiles and possibly the endangered Black Caiman, are also very dangerous to humans. They have extremely powerful jaws and sharp teeth for tearing flesh, but cannot open their mouth if it is held closed.

9. Ascaris Roundworm - One species, Ascaris lumbricoides, affects humans and causes the disease ascariasis. Humans playing host to the Ascaris Roundworm may also be infected with Ascariasis, a disease that typically effects the abdominal portion of the body. 

10. The Tapeworm - can live in your body for years and cause seizures, neurological issues as well as shutting down your organs. The tape worm can live in your body for years and cause seizures, neurological issues as well as shutting down your organs.
