If I came in contact with a group a spear wielding whales, I would run the other way.
3. Fanfin Anglerfish
There is a whole world of fishes like this one living deep within the ocean. This is actually one of the cuter looking ones of the bunch.
4. Portuguese Man O’ War
A large and very poisonous jellyfish. The one thing you really don’t want to see while snorkeling.
5. Common Sawfish
This critically endangered species is best recognized for having a giant saw for a snout, hiding in sand and not looking like something you would want to pick a fight with.
6. Killer Whale (Orca)
Sure, they look like they would be the pandas of the sea, but I’m pretty sure they are called ‘Killer Whales’ for a reason.
9. Banded Sea Krait
Snakes on land are bad enough. Also do beware that most seasnakes are venomous, including this one.
10. Tasmanian Giant Crab
I’m not sure if ‘Giant’ really does it justice.
11. Bull Shark
Just imagine if a bunch of these were in a tornado.
These living fossils may not be particularly dangerous, but they do have too many fins for me to be fully comfortable.
13. Elephant Seal
This picture was obviously taken by a brave individual
14. Blue Ringed Octopus
Anything that is less than a half foot in size but has the power to kill a human is not a friendly fellow.
