Tasmanian Devil

It’s no coincidence that “devil” is in the name. Tasmanian Devils are scary, bold creatures. They earned the “devil” part in their name due to how quickly they respond with aggression.
It was the early European settlers who gave them this nickname after witnessing aggressive displays.

If they feel slightly threatened, you’ll hear a blood-curling screeching noise, a frightening display of them bearing their sharp teeth, and the doozy you’ll smell a foul, putrid
smell that they emit to get rid of danger.

Tasmanian devils can fly into this uncontrollable rage due to a plethora of reasons, from defending
their food, fighting for a mate, or being threatened by a predator. They can get so angry that they bite through a metal trap.

It’s no wonder that they inspired the Looney Tunes character Taz, who’s known as a snarling
lunatic.

7. Saltwater Crocodile

You have probably already guessed that you don’t want to mess with crocodiles, so the saltwater crocodile must have done something truly horrifying to earn a notorious reputation as the number one most aggressive crocodile species on the planet.

Reaching more than 23 feet in length, weighing something close to a staggering ton, these killer crocs are the largest reptile in the world.

And not only that, but they hold the record for the most powerful bite ever tested. They can deliver a bite with 3,700 pounds per square inch of pressure, meaning that they rival the extinct T-Rex in ferocity.

Yes, the saltwater crocodile is seriously overpowered. And they get even more aggressive during their mating season.
Going up against powerful predators such as lions and water buffaloes is no trouble. Their temper alone powers their bodies. And they’re easily provoked, happy to lunge at anything that crosses its path.

Here is a scary fact: crocodiles are responsible for more human fatalities annually than sharks.
