North America is the third-largest continent on Earth. It is a diverse continent, home to people from other continents and all walks of life, filled with cities towering with skyscrapers, quiet rural areas, fields, mountains, deserts, forests, rainforests, meadows, swamps and icy tundras
No wonder it is home to hundreds of species of mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians and insects. Many of these are harmless and even beneficial to humans. Some, however, are not to be messed with.
Want to know the most dangerous animals in North America? Here’s a list of the top thirteen. If you see any of them in your back or front yard or — hopefully not — inside your car or house, better pick up the phone and call animal control as fast as you can.
The other important (and related) thing to bear in mind is that in most situations, it is humans who form the greater danger to animals, rather than the other way around.
Animals can experience injuries and death through hunting and road kill, plus the gradual destruction of natural habitat can cause permanent damage to animal populations over time.
