I love all creatures great and small, but I'm a little bit wary of any which have the propensity to kill or maim, and there are some deadly creatures you're going to want to avoid, whether you're on your travels or just sitting in your back yard. Whilst most of us are unlikely to stumble across many of these unless we're traveling to some far flung exotic location, it's worth knowing about some deadly creatures before you pack your hiking boots, bikinis and all important sun protection.
1. Australian SaltWater Crocodile
It seems a year doesn't pass without a story emerging about someone being maimed or worse by one of these crocs. These reptiles, which can reach up to 23 ft in length, are very cunning creatures indeed. They use what is known as the 'death-roll' to suffocate and ultimately drown their prey. Over 2,000 people die each year as a result of stumbling across an Australian SaltWater Crocodile, which is why they're one of the most deadly creatures.
