1.Killer whale

This guy just looks so cute, but he does have the word killer in his name and that alone should set alarm bells ringing. They are deadly if you are a fish because they will work together in teams to herd you into a massive group and then swallow you whole in just a matter of seconds.

2.Box jellyfish

This jellyfish can hang around in huge groups and it has been known to kill a number of humans over the decades. You can see here the damage that can be caused by the jellyfish and if you love swimming in the ocean, then you need to keep an eye out for them as the pain can be excruciating.

3.Fire sea urchin

So how can something like this be dangerous? The answer is that it has venom in the spines, so if you go up against it, then that venom will get inside you and start to cause all kinds of problems. The one thing you have to keep in mind is that humans have indeed died from standing on them because there is no anti-venom available.

4.Leopard seal

You wonder how this cute guy can be dangerous, but in actual fact they are fearsome hunters. They use stealth in order to sneak up on prey before pouncing and they do have powerful jaws and sharp teeth, so they really can cause a great deal of damage.

It is pretty obvious as to what the dangerous part of this fish is going to be just by looking at this picture. They have actually killed some humans, but that is by stabbing them with that long sharp part as they try to make a leap to safety after being caught.

6.Torpedo ray

This is deadly if you are part of their prey because it uses electric shocks to kill you. What it does is it traps the fish underneath and shocks it to death and you have to admit that this is both a cool and brutal way of doing it.

7.Bull shark

This guy might look like a gentle giant, but the problem here is that they swim towards their prey at a crazy speed and then devour them thanks to saw like teeth that just cuts the prey up coupled with the power in their jaws. This can include humans, so do be aware of this if you are in their territory.

They say that only two humans have ever been killed by this fish, but there are suspicions that this is not an accurate number. Instead, these fish are more dangerous because of the speed at which they attack their prey and they are certainly extremely good at what they do. If you are on their eating list there is little you can do to avoid them.

9.Sperm Whale

A sperm whale is dangerous for life in general in the ocean as it can attack a number of fish at the one time and it uses its huge teeth and mouth to fish on a scale that we just cannot imagine. They may not attack humans, but for sheer brutality towards other life forms they are certainly one of the most dangerous creatures.

10.Olive sea snake

This type of snake is the most toxic one anywhere in the ocean and there is no doubt that the venom can and will kill you if you come across it. Divers are at risk from them and if you are bitten, then you better get some help as quickly as possible.

11.Portuguese Man of war

This is a particular type of jellyfish that is going to cause you all kinds of problems if you come up against it. They are not as common as other types, but they carry one hell of a sting and you will be left in agony if you brush up against it. If you are allergic to it, then things could get even worse.

12.Great White shark

It goes without saying that when it comes to dangerous ocean animals the one that we tend to fear the most is the Great White shark. We know that it can just kill us in an instant and we have very little chance of surviving due to the power it has and anyway just look at those teeth.
