Hi Chipper
11 Animals More Likely To Kill You Than Sharks . Sharks are kinda scary. In the water they’re faster than us, can appear from what seems like out of nowhere in an instant, and pack a pretty solid bite. It’s easy to get nervous when you’re in the dark ocean and unsure of who is swimming by with a toothy grin. But sharks aren’t the animals you should be most afraid of. Here are some that are much more likely to cause your demise.if you’re swimming with bull sharks, you’re more likely to die by shark attack at that moment than a cow. But most of us aren’t in the water with sharks as often as we find ourselves next to a cow on a visit to a farm, or at a petting zoo. And we certainly are around bees and ants a whole lot more often than sharks. But if you find yourself swimming in the ocean — or even some rivers — you’re probably nearer to sharks than you realize.f
Mosquitoes:655,000 people killed each year, primarily in Africa, through the little buggers spreading malaria left and right.
Hippos:2,900 people are killed by these mammals annually in Africa. That roly-poly exterior is just to lure you in.
Deer:130 people killed across the US by deer, almost exclusively because they hit them with their cars. That saying “a deer in the headlights” came about for a reason.
Bees:53 people die each year in the US because of an allergic reaction from being stung.
Dogs:30-35 people are killed each year in the US. Fido isn’t always your best friend.
Ants:20-50 people are killed each year in Africa from ants. They may be small but dozens, hundreds, or even thousands stinging you really adds up.
Jellyfish:20-40 people per year die in the Philippines alone, from the anaphylaxis caused by the stings.
Cows:22 people are killed in the US every year from these seemingly docile creatures. They’re fun to pet, but getting kicked in the head… not as fun.
Horses:20 people die each year thanks to our equine friends.
Spiders:6.5 people die in the US every year from spider bites.
Rattlesnakes:5.5 people die from rattlesnake bites each year in the US, which isn’t a whole lot considering how common they are in popular hiking and camping areas.
Sharks:1 person is killed each year in the US and fewer than 6 worldwide are killed by sharks. From 2006 to 2010, there were just three fatalities from shark attacks in the US.
